SHAUN’S MADE FOR THE MID­FIELD

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By John Hodg­son

SHAUN Wil­liams may have been some­thing of a util­ity man at MK Dons, but Mill­wall boss Ian Hol­loway is plot­ting for his new sign­ing to go on the at­tack.

The 27-year-old had of­ten been used as a cen­tre-back at sta­dium:mk be­fore mak­ing a per­ma­nent switch to the Den last week for an undis­closed fee.

And he is now set to be re­moulded once more, with Hol­loway be­liev­ing he can be the at­tack­ing dy­namo his side are in need of as they look to claw their way out of rel­e­ga­tion trou­ble.

Hol­loway said:“I think he’s a won­der­ful passer of the ball, he can play in two or three po­si­tions but I think he’s an at­tack-minded mid­field player.

“That’s where I want to work with him and hope­fully he’ll set­tle in re­ally quickly.

“Be­cause he’s let his con­tract run out he’s come into the af­ford­able stage of his ca­reer, in an ideal world I’d have loved to take him in the sum­mer but we couldn’t wait for that.

“He chose us over a num­ber of clubs and hope­fully that’s through his con­ver­sa­tion with me and telling him how I see him play­ing for us.”
