Jed Wallace is set to sign a new long-term contract with Millwall.
The Lions have been in negotiations with the 24-year-old winger about improved terms for a prolonged period.
Wallace, snapped up from Wolves last summer for a knockdown fee, was the subject of at least one bid from Middlesbrough in the last transfer window.
Millwall have a new policy of not announcing the length of contracts – they did not make that information public when they signed Murray Wallace, Ryan Leonard, Tom Bradshaw or Jiri Skalak.
But Wallace, who initially arrived on a three-year deal in June 2017, has boosted his earnings along with committing over a longer period.
He has scored twice in 15 Championship matches this season – netting in the 4-3 defeat at Norwich City before the latest international break. The fixture at Carrow Road was also his 100th game in all competitions for Millwall.
