Millwall striker attracting permanent and loan interest – as deadline day move a possibility – South London News

Millwall are still weighing up whether Isaac Olaofe will make a exit before tonight’s transfer window deadline.

There has been heavy League One interest in the 22-year-old forward, who has previously had two productive loan spells at Sutton United.

Olaofe’s prospects of minutes for the Lions have been diminished by the recent addition of Andreas Voglsammer from Union Berlin.

He has played 95 minutes of football this season, 85 of those coming in the EFL Cup defeat to Cambridge United. Olaofe has not made the bench for Millwall’s last three Championship matches.

“Isaac is one who has done so well on loan and then picked up a couple of little niggles here and there which have made it difficult for him to be involved,” Millwall boss Gary Rowett told the South London Press. “He is one we’ve had a lot of interest in, both permanent and on loan. We’ll sit down today and assess things.

“If we don’t think he is going to get many opportunities to play then at some point he needs the opportunity to go somewhere and score goals. He’s a really good player, I really like him. But sometimes you’ve got to help a young player and match their ambition of playing football.

“He wants to play football regularly. He did that at Sutton, with good success. So we’ll sit down and see what we do there.”
