Harris 'delighted' to strengthen Millwall's attacking options

Lions boss believes his side will offer even more of a goal threat

Millwall manager Neil Harris believes that the final pieces of the jigsaw are falling into place following the arrival of Gregg Wylde at The Den, The Lions' third signing of the summer.

Following hot on the heels of the club announcing that both David Worrall and Shaun Hutchings are due to officially join Millwall on 1st July, boss Chopper spoke of his delight at further boosting his squad with the addition of live-wire winger Wylde from Plymouth Argyle.

"He came to light last year when we played down there in the JPT and he gave us a bit of a torrid time for the first half hour," he told millwallfc.co.uk

"We watched him another seven or eight times and every time he was highly recommended. He is an out and out left winger, likes to get down the flank and get crosses into the box.

"He is an old fashioned type of player who Millwall fans will enjoy watching. It is great to have him on board and is a statement of intent because I want attacking players on the pitch.

"I felt at odd times last year maybe we did not have as much of an attacking potent threat coming off the bench that I wanted and we relied quite heavily on Aiden (O'Brien) to be that lone threat.

"Bringing in a couple more attacking players in David Worrall and Gregg won't harm opportunities young players have as they can slide into positions left by other people like Lee Martin, Ed Upson and Chris Taylor, who all performed for us last year.

"I am delighted with out attacking options; we have players who can create goals and score them."
