Neil Harris has confirmed that nearly all of Millwall’s out-of-contract players will be moving on this summer.

The Lions are keen to do a deal for goalkeeper David Martin, who produced strong form down the closing straight of the Championship campaign.

But other stoppers – Jordan Archer, Ben Amos and Tom King – also become free agents at the end of next month.

The same applies to right-back Conor McLaughlin and central midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe.

Lions boss Harris has already indicated that he wants to strike a new agreement with Alex Pearce, who is coming out of contract at Derby County.

Steve Morison’s future is up in the air while Lee Gregory is set to sign for Stoke City.

Asked about how big a turnover there could be this summer, Harris said: “I don’t know exact numbers at the moment, because there is lots to consider.

“But I think I’ve gone on record to say that of the players out of contract, the majority will be leaving for various reasons.

“And the players under contract, some will be leaving because they don’t fit into my plans and we need to replace those players.”
