REID CATCHES THE EYE

Both Aston Villa and Arsenal watched the 20-year-old in action for Millwall on Wednesday evening as The Lions progressed into the next round of the Worthington Cup, with a 2-1 victory over Cardiff City.
The Kingston-born ace made an assured debut for the Republic of Ireland last week in their 2-2 draw with Croatia, and his impressive forward running and scoring rate has brought him to the attention of a whole host of clubs.
Millwall are highly unlikely to allow one of their home-grown stars to depart, as they embark on their first season back in the higher reaches of English football for four years.
However, it is unlikely that Villa and Arsenal are the only teams to have been made aware of Reid's progress, and, if he continues in his current vein of form, then a move to The Premiership in the future, be it with Millwall or not, is likely.
