On-loan Wolves winger not ruling out Millwall move

BEN Marshall could see himself joining Millwall on a permanent basis – but is putting thoughts about his future on hold as he tries to help the Lions into the play-offs.

Marshall joined the Lions on loan from Wolves in January and made an immediate impact. He scored the winner against Burton in his fourth game.

That was one of three goals so far for Millwall and he also has five assists.

Marshall, 27, has proved popular with Lions fans with his all-action style and superb crossing and shooting ability. He scored one of Millwall’s goals of the season when he curled into the top corner from 25 yards to seal a 2-0 win at Barnsley in March (above).

Former Leicester and Blackburn winger Marshall is contracted to Wolves until 2020, but their promotion to the Premier League will see them invest a large chunk of the £100million they have banked as a result and push Marshall further down the pecking order.

Marshall isn’t ruling out a permanent switch to Millwall.

“I know what it’s like here,” he said. “If I were to go to another team I wouldn’t. I know what the manager wants here, I know what I’m getting.

“Of course I’d love to come back.

“But before thinking about that we’ve got to try to get into the play-offs and do as best we can.

“We’ll sit down after that and see what happens.”
