Millwall manager Harris explains the latest with loanees Saville and Ferguson

4 January 2016

"We will have to see how the next couple of days develop," says the boss

Neil Harris says it would be "brilliant" if Millwall could keep hold of George Saville but admits that the midfielder is likely to return to parent club Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Saville, 22, has featured 15 times for The Lions this season having joined on a short-term basis back in October, but his appearance against Barnsley on Saturday was the last of his loan spell with the club.

Fellow loanee Shane Ferguson is eligible for one more game - this Saturday's trip to Oldham Athletic - and Harris has moved to clarify the situation regarding the duo.

"With George, I wouldn't be surprised if he goes back to Wolves," he said.

"George and Shane have done really well for us and gave us a real good boost to the squad because it's not the thickest one.

"George's loan has now finished and I'd imagine that Kenny (Jackett) is now going to want to take him back, have a look at him and cover his squad, which is not the biggest also.

"As much as we would like to do something with George we will have to see how the next couple of days develop. We've got an opportunity to do that before Saturday (against Oldham) but I'm not expecting too much from it if I'm being honest. If we can keep George then brilliant, but if not then we wish him all the best to go back.

"With Shane, his last game is next Saturday. He made a difference when he came on against Barnsley, putting some great balls into the box, and we will be speaking to Newcastle."
