Millen looks to strengthen before deadline

Millen looks to strengthen before deadline

City boss Keith Millen has re-entered the transfer market to try and beat tomorrow's transfer deadline to bolster his unbalanced squad.

With only four left-footers in a 33-man squad, Millen is believed to be after a genuine left-winger and a defender before Tuesday's 5pm deadline.

Speaking after City's unsurprising 2-0 defeat to Ipswich at the weekend, Millen told the Bristol Evening Post: "There is still a need to bring in someone who can play on the left and we are looking into it at the moment.

"It is an area we have talked about strengthening for a long time now and we have been trying hard to bring the right one in. But it has been difficult.

"We are looking at defenders and there have been a couple of deals going on for a while now.

"We have the two-week international break coming up now, so it will not be the end of the world if we cannot get someone in before the close of business on Tuesday."


This is yet another problem Millen has inherited from his predecessor Gary Johnson.

Johnson sold left-winger Michael McIndoe to Coventry over a year ago and, despite promises of a replacement being in place at the time of the sale, Millen is still having to pick up the pieces now.
