Millwall manager Kenny Jackett has confirmed that Neil Harris will not be offered a new contract by the club.

Harris is in his second spell with the Lions, but has scored just twice in 21 League One appearances.

The striker is not part of Jackett's long-term plans at the Den and will be allowed to leave the club on loan, if an offer is received in the coming weeks.

"Naturally Neil wants to know where he stands when his contract runs out at the end of the season because he has a family to think of and he wants to be playing football," Jackett told the club's official website.

Understands

"I told him that I could not offer him a new contract here and that also at the moment he is not going to feature in my first XI.

"He understands the situation and I have stated that if he wants to go out on loan to give himself a better chance of getting a deal somewhere else I am happy for him to do that.

"On the other hand, if he wants to stay here and fight for a place in the team I would be equally pleased.

"There is still a long way to go this season, and our experience with injuries and suspensions suggests that there will be opportunities still for players who are not currently in the team."
