Liam Trotter is happy to remain at the Lions, despite growing interest from Premier League clubs
Millwall star Liam Trotter is happy to open talks with the club about a new contract, if they wish to do so.
The Lions playmaker has made an excellent start to the season, scoring twice in the first four league games including an excellent 20-yard volley against Middlesbrough on Saturday.
The 24-year-old had been linked with a move to Aston Villa in the summer transfer window but no bid was forthcoming and it appears that he is still loving life at The Den.
“It’s up to the club if I get a new contract,” Trotter said. “Contracts are about money and what have you.
“If the club are ready to offer me a new deal we’ll sit down and talk about it.”
Manager Kenny Jackett is keen on extending the deal saying that the door is open for an agreement to be made.
“We’ve talked to him before,” he explained. “He has two years left on his contract.
“Liam is vice-captain. We think he is a very good player. Our door is open, yes.”
The Lions boss is also keen to keep Jimmy Abdou, who is out of contract at the end of the season.
“Jimmy is one we would like to keep,” Jackett added. “He’s been a very good player for us. We want to keep him.”
