Gary Rowett has confirmed he would be keen to bring Jayson Molumby back to Millwall – but that Brighton will keep the young midfielder with them for pre-season.
The 19-year-old midfielder, who turns 20 on August 6, has spent this season on loan with the Lions.
Molumby penned a new deal with Albion which extends his stay at the Premier League until June 2023.
Millwall manager Gary Rowett said: “Jayson has had a tremendous loan. He’s got huge potential. We’ve helped him and he’s helped himself. He’s starting to play with a bit more composure and control to go with his natural energy.
“I think the plan from Brighton’s end is that he goes back there and spends pre-season with them to see where he is at. He’s one we tried to push a little bit a few months ago but the general consensus from Brighton is that he would go back.
“Should Jayson be available I’m sure he’d be a player we’d be very interested in. But I’m sure a lot of other clubs would be too.”
