Manager Neil Harris has confirmed that with Newcastle United midfielder Shane Ferguson’s loan spell coming to an end following the weekend’s success over Oldham Athletic, Millwall are trying to sign him on a permanent deal.

The 24 year old came to the club back in August and has made 25 appearances since then, and at the weekend he grabbed the assist for Steve Morison’s goal and obviously the gaffer would like him to remain long term.

In quotes carried by News Shopper Harris explained.

‘We have gone really strong to Newcastle and made a bid for his services. We`re just waiting in the next few days to see how that unfolds. The board are certainly backing me in trying to buy him. He`s done really well for us and there`s so much more to come. I would like to have him here long-term. We`re trying to keep him and if we can`t keep him long-term then we`d certainly like to keep him until the summer. Fergie showed his quality again today (Oldham). He`s got a European Championship coming up in the summer and we can make a real statement. We are working hard with Fergie and working hard with Newcastle to make a deal happen.’

If the permanent option is knocked back it does sound very much like the plan B of a loan until the summer has already been discussed and put on the table as well.
