Harris looking to add 'Millwall character'

5 May 2015

Lions boss focuses attention on recruitment

Manager Neil Harris says that signing players with 'Millwall character' will be key to this summer's recruitment strategy.

The Lions look set for a busy summer in the transfer market as Harris and his backroom staff prepare a new-look squad for the 2015/16 League One campaign.

And that process, the Millwall boss insists, is already well underway.

"We've got a lot of players out of contract and a lot of players who need a fresh start," Harris said.

"The mix in the players needs to be right. There needs to be energy and there needs to be pace, but you need experience as well; you need players that can lead the dressing room.

"I'm mindful of what makes a good Millwall character and I know what that entails. Getting them will be key.

"Myself and Livers (Dave Livermore) have been extremely busy the last eight weeks going to games, studying players, speaking to people and gathering information. We've been looking for next season for a period of time now.

"Now we know what division we're going to be in we can knuckle down and really get the recruitment right."
