Millwall holding talks with Derby County defender

MILLWALL have spoken to Derby County about the possibility of signing defender Jason Shackell on loan.

Lions boss Neil Harris is in the market for defensive cover, and Shackell, 34, could fit the bill.

He is an experienced Championship player, and also featured in all 38 games for Burnley in the Premier League in 2014-15 under ex-Lions defender Sean Dyche.

Stevenage-born Shackell has played just twice for Gary Rowett’s side this season, both appearances coming in the EFL Cup.

NewsAtDen understands the clubs are in talks over a deal.

He would provide back-up and competition for Shaun Hutchinson and Jake Cooper.
