Ironically, this summer, it was Blackburn who Millwall turned to in attempting one of their first deals.

Who is Lewis Travis?

Blackburn Rovers’ immediate rebuffal of an offer for Leiws Travis should have come as no surprise to Milwall given his importance to Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side.

Not only has Travis been at the club since he was a youngster, at this stage, the 25-year-old has amassed 202 appearances for Rovers and is club captain.

Last season, Travis featured 48 times in all competitions for the club, too, so it is not as though his involvement had dwindled and this had encouraged the Lions.
