The manager provides a transfer update

11 January 2018

The Lions boss says he's happy to be patient as the January transfer window approaches its halfway point.

Most clubs have taken a cautious and guarded approach to business in the opening fortnight and Neil Harris admits it will take 'a spark' before he's able to add to his Millwall squad.

"It's been crazy," Harris told

"I have been watching the transfers closely and there has been around 11 loan deals over the last two days and I think that shows how thin on the ground it is at the moment.

"There has been next to no movement in The Championship whatsoever. Teams that are looking to loan, like ourselves, you're almost waiting for that spark - someone to move and get the ball rolling.

"Once that happens then teams can start thinking about loaning players out because they will get someone in from somewhere else. We are having to be patient and wait for that knock-on effect.

"It's not about panicking and taking someone that you aren't comfortable with, it's about getting the best player possible for our club.

"We have identified targets and spoke to clubs, agents, and players and we are in a good position with them. We just have to wait for the green light."

The Lions have enjoyed a good run of form over the last month, losing just two of their last eight matches.

"The form of the players in our team, and the players on the bench waiting to get in, has been top draw. With that in mind, there is no immediate need for someone to come in. 

"Hopefully that continues and it's just about adding to the squad."
