Sittingbourne defender Lex Allan has been training with Millwall.

The Championship club like the 6ft 7in centre-half and are set to invite him back.

Brickies put Allan on contract less than a fortnight ago following rumours of interest in the 18-year-old, who is in his first season of senior football.

Boss Nick Davis said: “Millwall watched Lex against VCD and got in touch in the week.

“He trained with the under-18s for a couple of hours and they put on a game against the under-23s to have a look at him.

“They liked him and want to get him back in for more training.

“He’s got all the attributes you can ask for.

“He’s exceptionally tall, relatively quick and his one-on-one defending is immense - I’ve never seen him get beaten.

“He’s only played six games of senior football, so it is early days for him, but if he keeps improving the way he is there’s no reason why he can’t go on and have a good career.

“He must be an intelligent player to have adapted as quickly as he has - he could go on to become a hell of a player.

“He wants to be a professional footballer one day and why not?

“It’s amazing to think a year or two ago he was sitting in Sheppey’s reserves and now he’s training at Millwall.”

Allan wouldn’t be the first Sittingbourne player to join Millwall should the south Londoners’ interest go anywhere.

Neil Emblen made the switch to the Den in 1993, signing for £210,000.

£210,000 in '93, sounds a lot to pay Sittingbourne for a player as we are fucking about now with offers of £500,000+ for our expensive purchases like we are throwing it around. Seems totally out of kilter

Thoughts anyone?

Big Mick spent over 4.5 million on players during his 4 years at Millwall between 92-96. Together with millions more on signing on fees & wages on free transfers. Signing 53 players.

Sadly this resulted in relagation, administration & 5 years of recovery.

Emblen was decent for about a dozen games before being sold for a 400k profit.

Michael Harle was part of the Emblen deal. He spent 4 years at the club, didn't make his debut for 3 years & then played around 20 games. That's more like it Mick.

Did the statuesque Damian Webber arrive from Sittingbourne or is that my memory on the blink?

20k had been allocated for a statue of Damian Webber.

However it was later decided 20k would be better spent on Micky Bennett's signing on fee.

Big Mick signed some dross didn't he! Rioch left him with an excellent squad. Who can forget the Irish duo Tony MacArthy and John Byrne.

McCarthy is a big nosed plastic Paddy northern know all wanker.

Worst manager this club ever had in my view.

Inherited a very good squad and left us en route for relegation with an awful squad.

Never has a Millwall manager wasted so much money on so much dross.

Could fill a page with the bad players he signed and the good ones would only need a finger of your hand to count.

Bowry, Newman, Fuchs to bring back just three very bad memories

Tony McCarthy was a straight swap for Colin Cooper. As stated by Big Mick. Although selling Cooper was out of his control.

Swapping Mcginlay for John Bryne was in Big Mick's control. The club actually losing 115k in the process.

Ah, the goal machine that was Duvet Fuchs. Didn't he get rid of John McGinlay too? Hardly a like for like replacement!

John Bryne was a straight swap for Mcginley. 

Bryne cost 250k & Mcginley was sold for 135k in the same week. 

This was an accident waiting to happen. Bryne was in his 30's & injury prone. Mcginley was in his 20's & had scored goals in his career. Including for Millwall. 

Bryne scored 1 goal for Millwall. Mcginley helped Bolton to 2 promotions, cup runs & Premiership football. Once scoring 30 Championship goals in one season.
