Derby County forward Mason Bennett says his time at the club is done as he looks to get settled on loan at Championship rivals Millwall, News at The Den report.

Bennett’s contract at Derby is set to expire in the summer.

And the new Millwall attacker told reporters that his time at Pride Park has drawn to a close.

I’m here to play football. I think that’s what the fans want to see. What’s happened has happened and I’m here to give my all for this club. I’ve had my time at Derby and when I look back on it I have some great memories. But I need to move on with my career and get going again.

Bennett made his Derby debut aged 15 and was a star at academy level.

 

Injuries, however, have restricted his playing time at Pride Park and in over 80 appearances for the Rams he has managed to complete the full 90 minutes just twice.

After previous loan spells, Bennett enjoyed his best season last term. He posted three goals and four assists in 33 Championship games under manager Frank Lampard.

But the drink-driving incident involving Tom Lawrence damaged his popularity at Derby.

Bennett needs a fresh start. And under his former manager Gary Rowett he may find success at Millwall. The Lions are currently eighth and chasing a playoff spot.
