Recent Leeds United transfer target Martyn Woolford released by Millwall

Millwall have released winger Martyn Woolford today.

Millwall have confirmed on their official website that winger Martyn Woolford will not be offered a new contract to stay at the club.

The Lions suffered relegation to League One this season, meaning new manager Neil Harris will lose a number of players this summer.

The club released their retained list earlier today, with the likes of Ricardo Fuller, Danny Shittu and Richard Chaplow all featuring - as well as Woolford.

The 29-year-old wide man joined Millwall from Bristol City back in 2013, and played 40 games for the club this season, scoring three goals.

Yet with Woolford out of contract, Millwall have decided to let the former Scunthorpe star leave the club, making him a free agent this summer.

That news may be of interest to Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn, who admitted to the Yorkshire Evening Post back in February that he wanted to bring Woolford to Elland Road - but couldn't get the deal over the line before the transfer deadline.

"It’s no secret that I admire Martyn Woolford," Redfearn said. "He’s got Championship experience, he’s scores goals and he gives you physical presence on the left. He gives you that balance and he’s the type of player we’re looking for."

Of course, uncertainty surrounds the future of Redfearn after Leeds president Massimo Cellino told Simon Austin that he still hasn't decided whether to keep the Whites boss or not, but if he does stay, he will want new signings to kick the club forward.

Given his availability, Woolford figures to be on Redfearn's shopping list this summer - and with Leeds desperately needing wingers, he may not be a bad option.
