Manager Neil Harris has said that whoever Millwall loan in under him, it’s always with an eye to the future but it doesn’t necessarily mean plans are set in stone.

With on loan Blackburn Rovers wide boy Chris Taylor scoring a brace and providing Steve Morison’s assist in the Bury victory last weekend, the 29 year old’s name came up in questions recently, especially with him out of contact in the summer, and Harris opened when speaking to the South London Press about his last performance.

‘Chris was disappointed with his performance last Tuesday against Fleetwood and was honest enough to admit it and say he would be better. He scored twice and almost got two more, so I am really pleased for him.’

Speaking more about the future, Harris confirmed he always brought people in with an eye to the long term, and Shane Ferguson is a good point there, but equally it can be longer term future like George Saville and Jed Wallace.

So fans shouldn’t necessarily expect a deal to be in the pipeline on a permanent basis, as that isn’t always the driver.

‘Whenever we loan someone, there has to be something long-term in it for us – whether it is to look at someone like George Saville and Jed Wallace, or something longer like Shane Ferguson. We have an idea of Chris` qualities and he has fitted in well with the lads and the fans, but it is too early to talk about the long-term.’

Taylor himself had been speaking after the last game, and his performance, and he explained.

‘Millwall are the perfect club to go out on loan to. I`m delighted the gaffer has brought me here and I`m hoping to repay his faith. I was pleased with the performance but you can look through the whole team and there were a number of good ones. I was disappointed with myself against Fleetwood. I don`t think I played anywhere near what I can do. But it shows the spirit the gaffer has here that we manage to grind out a result. That`s the sign of a good team. I put the ball in a dangerous area and was hoping someone would get on the end of it and put it in but it went in.’
