MILLWALL are facing a fight to hang on to two of their brightest prospects, after both Lucas Neill and Neil Harris were watched by Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Lions` manager Mark McGhee has denied that any of his promotion chasing squad are available for transfer, but Boro boss Terry Venables has stated that he watched top-scorer Neil Harris on Saturday, and confirmed he was watching other players.

One of these is believed to be right wing back Lucas Neill, who Venables knows from his time as Australian coach.

"Yes, I was looking at Harris," said Venables."But he was only one of several players that interested me in the game.

"We are working very hard to bring in another player."

However, McGhee was quick to deny that Harris is set to leave The New Den, despite obvious interest.

"There's been no bid from any club, and there is no bid that we would take for Neil Harris," said McGhee. "He will be worth a lot more in the summer so there will be no immediate moves."

Meanwhile, one deal between Middlesbrough and Millwall which did not come off, was Neil Maddison`s proposed loan switch to South London after the former Southampton midfielder opted for Bristol City.
