According to a report in the South London Press, Millwall are considering rivalling Championship rivals Huddersfield Town for Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale who could be available on loan.

The Lions are in the market for a new goalkeeper this summer as both David Martin and Jordan Archer are due to be free agents at the end of June when their contracts at The Den expire.

 

Millwall are said to be in talks with Martin over a new deal while Archer has been told he can leave. Ben Amos, another option, has returned to parent club Bolton Wanderers after a loan spell.

Even if Martin signs an extension at The Den, Neil Harris’s side will still be short on goalkeeping options and will need to sign at least one this summer ahead of another gruelling Championship campaign.

Bournemouth’s Ramsdale spent this season out on loan at AFC Wimbledon. He impressed at The Dons, winning the Player of the Year award as the League One club avoided the drop on goal difference.

Huddersfield are said to be keen on the 21-year-old following their relegation from the Premier League, and the Terriers could be in a better position to seek a permanent deal as they are backed by parachute payments.

Ramsdale’s contract at Bournemouth expires in 2021. While he may not be ready for the Cherries’ first-team now, manager Eddie Howe could see him as a long-term replacement for Asmir Begovic.
