Nedum Onouha would be a smart signing for Millwall

Millwall hunt on the bargain market and the former QPR captain would be perfect.

Nedum Onouha is currently on the hunt for a new club. The former QPR captain left Loftus Road this summer after six years at the club. The 31-year-old defender played 223 games for the club, always giving his all for the club but deciding the time was right to leave this summer.

Now he is available on a free transfer and many teams in the Championship and League One will no doubt be keen on the player.

One team who should definitely be keen are Millwall.

This summer they will want to improve, but to do so is difficult given their financial situation. Millwall spend wisely in the transfer market. Relying on cheap signings and free agents this summer will be as tough as ever for Millwall to make wholesale improvements.

Which is why Onouha should be one of their targets. Capable of playing at right-back or centre-back he could be a great addition to the club’s already impressive back-line. Budging one of Shaun Hutchinson or Jake Cooper from a starting position would be tough for the experienced defender. But if Millwall want to sustain a challenge for promotion again next season strength in depth will be key.

If his wages are reasonable they could offer Onouha the perfect chance to remain in the Championship and remain in London.

This would be a perfect fit for both club and player.
