The Lions were never really big spenders and throughout their history, there have been only a couple of times they’ve actually decided to splash the cash on record reinforcements. Still, the last few years have been quite exciting for both the club and the fans when it comes to new arrivals.
In the summer of 2018, the purchase of Jiri Skalak for a reported fee of £900,000 broke the previous record that was held by Scott Malone’s 2012/13 transfer from Bournemouth for £846,000. But the Lions would not stop there.
In the following winter transfer window, Millwall would bring in another two reinforcements, first securing the signing of Ryan Leonard from Sheffield United and then, in a matter of days, acquiring the services of Tom Bradshaw from Barnsley, both for a reported fee of £990,000. These two transfers became the top two on the list of the most expensive ones in the history of the club.
However, in 2019/20, Connor Mahoney joined from Bournemouth for the very same amount and the three players are now joint-top of the list.
When it comes to departures, though, the figures are somewhat bigger and there have been a couple of really lucrative sales for the Lions in recent years. George Saville was sold to Middlesbrough for a fee of £7m, and this is still the biggest piece of business they’ve ever done as a club.
Saville also broke the record that was previously held by Steven Reid and his £3.2m move to Blackburn in 2003/04.
They may not be the biggest spenders out there but there have certainly been some big names donning their colours throughout the years. Saville is certainly a name that stands out on the list of their transfers as the centre-forward was sold for big profit despite staying at the club for such a short period of time, all things considered.
And then we have the likes of Tim Cahill, who was sold to Everton in 2004/05 and if we go further back in time, Teddy Sheringham who moved to Nottingham Forest in 1991/92 and ended up topping charts. It should also be mentioned that Harry Kane also spent some time on loan at Millwall before he went on to become the illustrious striker he is now known for being.
But there also the likes of Harry Cripps, who joined from bitter rivals West Ham United back in the 1960s, Terry Hurlock or even Paul Goddard who cost the team a record transfer fee of £800,000 back in 1989.
