Harvey Bussell has left his position as Millwall’s head of recruitment.
Football Insider reported last week that Alex Aldridge had agreed a return to the Den outfit.
Bussell succeeded Aldridge in the role after he opted to head up Stoke City’s recruitment department.
Millwall confirmed Bussell’s departure this afternoon.
“Bussell joined the Lions in January 2021 and has worked tirelessly during the three transfer windows since to improve the first team squad and also enhance recruitment processes behind-the-scenes,” said the Lions in a statement on their official website.
“He implemented and delivered an effective loan player management policy, streamlining internal data and scouting practices whilst achieving internal cost saving measures to enhance other areas of the club.
“Covid-19 has made for significantly more difficult transfer market conditions than in previous years, as seen with reduced spending across the EFL Championship, but Bussell and his team have continually searched for innovative ways to overcome hurdles put in their way by the pandemic and Brexit which has limited the scope of players available.
“Everyone at The Den would like to thank Bussell for his efforts while with the club and wish him the best of luck for the future.”
