Several Clubs In It For Berra
Several clubs have made approaches for Scottish centre back Christophe Berra according to sources. The free agent has reportedly seen offers come in from Stoke City, Millwall and Blackpool but has yet to make a decision on his future.
Berra, who played for Wolves and Hearts previously, is seen as an ideal choice for Millwall, who need to strengthen their defence, and the allure of first team football might just persuade him, but it will be tough, says manager Mike Phelan.
"Berra is in demand and as much as I want him, the Premier League will definitely be taken into consideration. But we have put an offer on the table and the terms have been agreed, so we hope it can go through," Phelan told The Sun
Stoke City's offer of top flight football may just do the trick though, and Millwall are already considering options. After Ross Turnbull signed only a matter of days ago, Tottenham full-back Adam Smith rejected The Den for arch rivals Charlton Athletic at the Valley.
"It was bad to miss out on him, but we have others lined up," Phelan responded. "He looked a talent and hopefully we can get someone else in," he added.
In other Lions news, Millwall have offered trials to the end of pre-season for several youngsters including JJ Hooper, and are waiting on confirmation ahead of their first pre-season game at Valenciennes at The Den.
