Millwall eye Beevers loan extension

Millwall are keen to extend the loan spell of Wednesday defender Mark Beevers.

The 22-year-old centre-back has impressed with the Lions since joining the club on a 28-day emergency loan and has yet to experience defeat in the four matches he's played in, as well as chipping in with one goal in Millwall's 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.

His final game in his initial loan spell will be tomorrow when Kenny Jackett's men visit Nottingham Forest but the Londonders could move to extend the deal.

'He has one more game but we'll speak to Sheffield Wednesday at the end of his loan, I'm sure,' Jackett told London24.

'Since he's been we've been unbeaten so it's a nice little run and a nice stat. As a young player, he's looking to get into a Championship side, stay there and make his way.'

The Barnsley-born defender had featured in eight matches for the Owls this season before his departure to the New Den.

If we were doing well at the top of the table as opposed to competing with Millwall for the same oxygen, and if an extended loan was agreed as part of a permanent deal involving a substantial fee and a bunch of sell-on clauses then I'd say - Fine! After all, Mark Beevers is a decent player who's already accumulated some valuable experience given his age. His opportunities are obviously limited here and if Wednesday can make good on the deal then why stand in his way? Trouble is, this whole deal smacks of us shooting ourselves in the foot somehow. Helping out a rival at our own expense. Or am I missing something?

on the button again Maurice. but it is only someone elses gain because it is working - which in turn could work to our advantage. If he plays out of his skin for his loan period then we have 2 options 1 - gain a better fee for him or 2 recall a decent centre back who is bang in form . so not having a deal in place may well be a stroke of genius
