And the boss has already started planning for next season, with some notable releases.

Pearce, 33, leaves the New Den, and the captain’s armband, after making 80 appearances.

A statement from the Lions read: “The defender scored a memorable goal in an Emirates FA Cup tie with Brighton & Hove Albion in his sixth game for Millwall.

“And the club expresses its gratitude to Alex for his excellent service to the Lions.”

Connor Mahoney is also leaving the Londoners.

Like Pearce, the 25-year-old joined the club in 2019, making 68 appearances in all competitions.

But his time at the club was cut short by injury.

Millwall have offered Jed Wallace a contract, while talks continue with Maikel Kieftenbeld, whose contract expires next month.
