Steve Morison wants to stay and fight for his place at Leeds United, after national newspaper reports had linked him with a move away from Elland Road, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

New Millwall boss Steve Lomas is said to be keen to add Morison to his squad, but his efforts to bring the Wales international striker back for a second spell with the Lions may prove fruitless due to Morison’s reluctance to move away from Leeds.

The 29-year-old striker had originally been brought in as part of the transfer of Luciano Becchio to Norwich in January, with then manager Neil Warnock seeing Morison as an ideal replacement for the Argentine centre forward.

But Morison’s start to life in Yorkshire has been a disappointing one, with the striker only finding the net three times in 15 appearances and putting in a series of lacklustre performances.

Lomas would have hoped that he could have coaxed Morison back to his best, with the striker enjoying his best form of his career at The Den previously, but the deal now looks unlikely.

Commenting on the potential transfer, Lomas said: “Steve Morison had a really good spell here.

“I think what it is, is basically people putting two and two together. I have made a lot of enquiries for a lot of players, but until you get the deal over the line, it is very hard for me to try and tell you where we are at.

"You can rest assured I’ve spoken to a lot of agents and people at other clubs.”
