Chopper rules out selling young stars

Millwall boss Neil Harris believes that Aiden O'Brien's new long-term contract is a show of intent from the club.

The 22-year-old has put pen-to-paper on fresh terms at The Den, committing himself to Millwall until June 2019.

O'Brien, who has 10 goals to his name so far this season, is one of a number of Academy graduates featuring regularly for the first team squad and Harris says that news of the Irishman's contract is an example of the club's ambition.

"There has been a lot of publicity around Aiden and interest in the young man, especially when he scored all those goals after coming back into the team," the boss told

"It has been clear from day one that no young players are for sale at this club because they are the future for Millwall.

"We are foregoing attempts at overnight success to give them the opportunity to progress with us and build theirs and our futures together.

"It shows intent from the board and is an example that if you break into the first team, reach expectations and improve, then you will be rewarded for that because we're an ambitious club."
