Millwall will not be making permanent signings in the January transfer window – with boss Neil Harris revealing that loan deals are being lined up for the new year sales.

The Lions are looking to bring in another centre-back to cover the loss of Byron Webster, facing a fight to be back this season after undergoing knee surgery, and will also aim to bring in another offensive option.

“We’re not looking at bringing in players on permanent deals,” said Harris. “We’re looking at loan players with the possibility of extending their stay with us in the future – like we did with Shane [Ferguson], Jed [Wallace], George [Saville] and Jake [Cooper].

“You can spend so much time wasting working on deals and it is a seller’s market. One thing we won’t change – and it never will – is players coming in on our terms, not somebody else’s.

“We are certainly looking at bringing two players in. We need defensive cover as we’re short without Byron and an attacking player to add options to the quality we have already.

Need a right-footer at the back. It's unfair keep asking Hutch
to tackle with his wrong foot.

I am not surprised by NH's view on all this and it all makes good sense.

Byron is a big loss and even if he comes back in March it might still the time for him to be match fit and to be playing well enough to displace Hutch or Cooper. There is also the possibility that even when he does return that he might be up to the level he was before the knee injury. His contract is up in the summer and the club might well decide that his best days are behind him and they don't renew his contract. A loaned CB could then have the chance to make a name for himself and earn a contract to replace Webster.

The same scenario could apply to a new forward. Morison is not getting any younger and a new man could force his way into the side and earn a contract.. Interesting times ahead.

We have done really well to get to this point in the season and not suffer an injury to Hutch or Cooper as TC is not really up to it any more.

The policy of looking for players not making the squad or the team of their current clubs and taking them on loan (try before you buy) is clearly successful.

My understanding is that we have a striker already lined up, not sure this one would be a loan though as he's 30 yr and was available at the end of August for circa 200k. Maybe a cheeky bid of half that.

Silver your correct on the Webster situation, the club wont offer a new contract until they have assessed how he has recovered from the injury.

The only thing I find offensive about this article is the use of the word "offensive".

Note to "journalist" who wrote this piece: we are in England, you cunt. So use the word "attacking" or, better still, "forward".

What next? Looking for a player to put on Millwall's navy blue and white uniform? Going to discuss locker room banter at The Den?

Gee! Wouldn't the be swell!

I've got nothing against loan players as long as they are not in their mid thirty's and are just looking for a pay day

There is not much point signing a permanent CB. Webster has another couple of years in the Championship if he returns to full fitness. It is worth giving him the chance to fully recover & sign a new contract. Doubt there will be anyone better available & out of contract in the summer. Webster was playing well this season.

Might be worth signing a forward permanently. Otherwise could end up with another Puncheon & Wood situation. However if a Premiership reserve does sign on loan & does well, the club could offer to take him on a season long loan next season. Wonder if Jacket tried that with Kane ?

Suspect Spurs would have let Kane re join Millwall on a season long loan. Or even sold him for a million. 

After his loan spell at Millwall he went on loan to Norwich & Leicester in the Championship. He didn't become prolific at Spurs until his third season after Millwall. 

Maybe a mistake by Jacket after Kane had scored 9 in games 27 games for Millwall.

Harry Kane told me that KJ had already confirmed to him that he wanted him to be at the club the following season, but wasn't sure what plans Spurs had.

He said he loved it at The Den so would be happy is something was sorted out, though he saw his future at Tottenham.

Yet again another post putting Tony Craig down.
He has always done what the manger has asked of him and tried
he's best. Show him some respect.

If that's true he's going to be kept busy.

On the subject of keepers, I was discussing the relative merits of Archer and Martin with a supporter who knows a man, who knows a man, who knows Neil well (I think you understand the scenario) and told me that Harris thinks King will be a better keeper than Archer and the only reason he's not picking him because he lacks experience. Make of that what you will!
