Premier League Relegated Clubs Show Interest

Former Premier League clubs Burnley and Sheffield United are setting their sights on Basel’s dynamic midfielder Liam Millar. The 24-year-old Canadian has caught the attention of these clubs following their relegation from the top flight.

Championship Contenders and European Clubs Join the Chase

It’s not just the relegated duo vying for Millar’s signature; several Championship teams are also in the mix. Preston North End, where Millar showcased his talent on loan, and Sunderland are among the English clubs interested. Additionally, a number of European outfits are keeping tabs on the versatile player.

Contract Situation Sparks Transfer Speculation

With just one year remaining on his contract with the Swiss Super League team, Millar has become a hot prospect. Vincent Kompany’s Burnley and Sheffield United are both alerted to the potential bargain, looking to bolster their squads for a swift return to the Premier League.

Millar’s Impressive Loan Spell at Preston

Despite playing out of position as a wing-back, Millar made a significant impact at Preston North End, scoring five goals in 35 appearances. Overall, he contributed to 13 goals during the season, with three for Basel and ten while at Preston, underlining his adaptability and attacking prowess.

From Liverpool Academy to Basel Standout

Millar’s journey began at Liverpool’s academy, which he joined at 16, culminating in a first-team appearance in an FA Cup tie in 2020. After loan spells at Kilmarnock and Charlton, he made a permanent move to Basel in a £1.3 million deal in 2021.

Competition Heats Up for Preston’s Loan Star

Following a successful loan period at Preston, manager Ryan Lowe is keen to secure Millar on a permanent basis. However, with interest from recently relegated Premier League clubs and the absence of a buy option in his loan deal, the competition for his signature is heating up.
