Freedman could wait to snap up Millwall winger Feeney for nothing next summer
DOUGIE Freedman has told Liam Feeney that he will remain in his thoughts next summer after he was called back early by Millwall from a three-month loan spell.
The 26-year-old winger is out of contract at The Den next summer and had not played a league game for the London club before being sent out in September.
He made a big impact in his first two full games but after Millwall lost James Henry to Wolves, they tried to force through an early deal with the threat of invoking a 28-day recall clause.
It had been hoped he would remain in place until after this weekend, but with injuries also mounting up for Lomas, the decision has now been taken to bring him back.
A fee had been agreed between the two clubs for January – but Freedman says he is more likely to wait until after his contract expires before looking to sign him again.
“It’s something we can’t affect,” he said. “We had an agreement and Millwall have exercised their option to recall Liam. It’s disappointing but there we go.
“But he’s out of contract in the summer so we will keep an eye on his situation.”
