MILLWALL have opened talks with cash-strapped Leeds United over a season-long loan deal for former striker Steve Morison.
The Whites need to free up space in their wage budget in order to seal a deal for Noel Hunt, which is already verbally agreed, and the Lions have stepped in with an offer for Morison.
With Hunt due to sign on at Elland Road next week, manager Brian McDermott hinted at Morison's exit, saying: "It could happen that players go out of the door and others come in. There have been enquiries.
"If you have a surplus in a position then it makes sense because players can get regular football. If that arises, I will have that discussion with that player.
"I've got a verbal agreement with one player which will happen next week. As far as I'm concerned that agreement is a deal so that will be done."
Morison scored 40 goals in 95 appearances for the Lions between 2009 and 2011 before joining Norwich City for £2.1million. He only moved to Leeds in January this year but does not appear to feature in McDermott's plans.
