Millwall manager Rowett: I’ve already had Zoom calls with potential transfer targets

Gary Rowett has revealed he has already had Zoom calls with potential transfer targets – with the summer transfer window opening next Monday.

The EFL announced last week that clubs will be able to do business from July 27.

And Millwall can now start pressing ahead with their summer strengthening plans as their Championship play-off hopes were ended on Saturday.

Lions manager Rowett said: “We’ll move as quick as we can move.

“The challenge I’ve always had with transfer windows – and in particular when you’re looking for more quality than you have got in the team – is you either bring in young players with potential in them who can get better, or you bring in young players who can add a little bit more to what you’ve got.

“There’s no point bringing the same sort of players in.

“In order to get those type of players, you’ve got to make sure you’re patient as well.

“I’m sure everyone is the same – I’d love to go and announce three or four signings the day the window opens but realistically we have to work incredibly hard to get some of those players to the club.

“But a lot of that work has been done. I’ve had a couple of Zoom calls with potential players. We’ve had a couple of conversations with agents about players we’re interested in.

“All of that is ongoing for every club. The second it opens you hope that you’ve got one or two things lined up.”
