Millwall Football Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Harvey Bussell as its new head of recruitment.
He arrives at The Den with a wealth of scouting and recruitment experience in a career which started with Burton Albion in 2013. A year later Bussell left to join Birmingham City as an analyst before taking on the role of European technical scout in April 2016. A further 12 months passed before a promotion to senior scout and then in April 2018 he became The Blues’ head of scouting.
At St Andrew’s Bussell created and oversaw a talent identification and recruitment strategy for the first team which included the permanent and loan signings of players both from domestic and international clubs and leagues. He joins The Lions with an outstanding reputation having accrued an extensive network of contacts in recent years.
“I’m very excited to be joining Millwall,” Bussell said. “This is a club with a proud history but also one which is clearly thinking about its future and how it plans to succeed in the short, medium and long-term.
“My job will be about assisting Gary Rowett and his coaching team to achieve their goals by ensuring our recruitment processes are thorough, diligent and shaped so as to ensure the best for the football club at all times.”
