One in, one out at Millwall on Deadline Day
1st September 2025
Millwall have replaced attacking midfielder Igor Gomes with Club Brugge’s Arne Geerts on deadline day with a net spend of £5.5M.
The Brazilian attacking midfielder Igor Gomes only made a total of 21 appearances since joining in January 2025 for £15M, but Leicester City have purchased the 26-year-old for a fee of £30M, doubling the players’ value in nine months.
Belgian attacking midfielder Arne Geerts joined Millwall just four hours later, with Tyrone Henry acting fast to fill the number 10 gap in his team left behind by Gomes.
Millwall activated the 18-year-old’s Club Brugge release clause of £35.5M to bring Geerts to The Den after four years in the youth teams at the club.
With the issue of Geerts’ lack of experience raised by the media, Henry has taken to defending his new signing by commenting on the quality of his scouting team and the analysis that has gone into tracking the player.
Scott: It just keeps on growing under Henry!
James: You are correct, that is Peter Gulacsi in goal, getting dinked by our main man right at the death
Mauve: Rowett is doing a very good job there in real life, I used to hate playing Millwall on matchdays in the Championship
Justice: Perfect, as always
Seb: We've got a great bunch here with some really strong characters, I'm really lucky to have them! It's displayed in performances like these where they display nerves of steel.
