Leeds United centre-back Charlie Cresswell is looking increasingly likely to remain at Millwall for the remainder of the season.

The summer window brought a huge opportunity for Charlie Cresswell and others to go out into the EFL for the first time in search of regular senior minutes.

That spell hasn’t gone to plan so far for the centre-back, who finds himself struggling for regular starts at Millwall.

January has already provided a number of twists for the 20-year-old, with reports from The Athletic emerging outlining that he is likely to be recalled, followed by the YEP revealing that the club were willing to listen to permanent offers for the centre-back.

Of the clubs potentially keen on signing him, Alan Nixon revealed that Middlesbrough were one of those, with claims of £4million being enough to see Leeds sell.

Now, Leeds Live’s Beren Cross has claimed that the defender is more than likely going to stay put at the New Den this month instead of being recalled or sold to another club.

That’s because the window for Leeds to terminate his loan with the Lions looks to have elapsed, as Cross writes:

“Time is rapidly running out for any prospect of another move for Charlie Cresswell this season. The centre-back is in and around Millwall’s matchday squads in the Championship, but some thought had been given to considering a permanent exit in this window.

“However, the deadline for cancelling his Millwall loan has long since passed and it seems increasingly likely he will see out the rest of the campaign at The Den. Jamie Shackleton seems set to continue with Gary Rowett’s side too.”

Should Leeds sell Cresswell?

Yes

Yes

No

No

If the club don’t think Cresswell has a future at the club, then they needed to get a permanent move sorted for him this month.

However, in the ling run, I think sitting tight on any sale is the right idea, knowing that his value could rocket with a good six-month run of form.

There wouldn’t be a shortage of clubs looking to sign him, meaning we could drive the price to what we see fit for him.
