Former Millwall youngster being linked with transfer to Tottenham as he heads back to Den this weekend

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Ebere Eze heads back to former club Millwall on Saturday with talk the Greenwich-born playmaker is being trailed by Tottenham.

One national newspaper claim Spurs want a January deal for the 21-year-old, who has scored three goals and claimed two assists.

Eze was released by Millwall in 2016.

He has won six caps for England U20s and was a late call-up for the U21 squad in the last international break, although he did not get on in fixtures against Kosovo and Turkey.

Eze produced a sparking display in QPR’s 3-2 win over Luton last weekend. Not only did he score and assist, he also struck the woodwork twice and had a 93 per cent pass accuracy.

QPR forward Naki Wells said: “He can be a matchwinner for us week in, week out.”

Millwall boss Neil Harris says he wants every player who leaves the Lions to realise their dreams.

“I’m really pleased he’s doing well,” said the Lions chief.

“It is not about individual players who have played for us, left us or stayed with us.

“What we want as a group – from Scottie Fitzgerald, all the academy staff, myself, Livers [David Livermore] and Ads [Adam Barrett] is that if players leave us – especially ones who have come through our academy – we want to see them go and do really well, to thrive and above where we are at.

“But 90 per cent of players who leave us are going to be at our level or lower.

“I’m really delighted to see Ebs doing well, just like I want to see Sid Nelson and Tom King do well. They are playing league football – brilliant. I love it. Alfie Pavey got his move to Barnet this week and has progressed himself back up non league to a top Conference side. I hope he gets back into league football.”
