Millwall boss tight lipped on Bart rumours

Millwall boss Neil Harris is keeping his cards close to his chest regarding a move for keeper Bartosz Bialkowski.

Speaking to London News Online, Harris said “We’ve been linked with players. Some are right and some come completely from nowhere, players from countries where we’ve never heard of the player. We have never recruited from abroad, so it’s not likely we will sign one from Outer Mongolia on a 12-year contract.

“Some will be true – that we have enquired about or made a bid for. Sometimes reports come out but we like to do our business in private and not alert other clubs to what we’re doing and what we’re spending. When it does come out it comes out from one place – and that’s an agent.

“I won’t be talking about individual players at other clubs.”

Millwall are certainly in the market for a keeper with David Martin having joined local rivals West Ham, Ben Amos’s loan from Bolton having ended and Jordan Archer moving on following the end of his contract.

TOTT understands that both Town and Bialkowski would be open to the idea of parting. Bialkowski, Towns highest earner, signed a new deal last year after returning from duty with Poland at the World Cup finals in Russia.

The new contract was paired with the rejection of a £3 million bid from Birmingham City, a club who are understood to still be interested in the Pole. However, Blues manager Garry Monk has reportedly fallen out with the board at St.Andrews over the transfer policy which club leave the two parting ways.
