SHAUN Derry's loan spell at Millwall has been extended until January.

The 35-year-old had been due to return to parent club QPR after his initial 28-day stay came to an end following the Lions' 1-1 draw with Brighton.

Derry admitted after the draw at the Amex Stadium that he was unsure whether he would remain in South London, but a deal has been struck to keep him with Steve Lomas' squad.

    no signings today, hopefully a few in the loan window although. a youngster from a big club is what we need, someone fresh with a point to prove and full of ambition.

      The reality is that Lomas hasn't managed to offload any except DNG. He was probably hoping to move on another two or three but that's now looking unlikely.
      Taken as a whole, the current season signings have been numerous and of good quality.
      You never know, things might gel and at the last minute he may be able to do some deals. If not, then there's always the loan market. Simple truth is Millwall do not have a mega budget and we all have to live with that.

    Actually, saying that our main issue now is conceding from set pieces. So I'd rather get a new defender. And Shittu should only be used as a sub now.

      @Dazi: Shittu is a centre half of limited ability whose positioning, at times, beggars belief but he does have his strengths. When he is on top of his game those strengths make him a valuable player for us. The problem I have is that he is seen by many as our lead defender, i.e. Shittu plays with either Beevers or Robbo. He isn't a good enough footballer to play this role and should be competing with Beevers for the place alongside Robbo. I strongly believe that signing a real quality footballing centre half would be the making of this team.

            @lion.ie: @BMC 12:12 - he has a comfort zone around the penalty spot that's there for all to see, it's when he wanders that he puts himself and his team mates in trouble, I've cited the 1st goal at Wembley before and there are other examples this season and last. A good player, with a good attitude but he's not the organiser and leader we badly need in the back four.

    I thought our priority was a right back but as I said on an earlier thread I could see this coming. What's SL going to do when Trotter is fully fit? He will then have Derry, Chaplow,Bailey and Trotter all central midfielders. Play Chaplow on the wing? In which case why did we sign Martin?

      Offloading DNG is the justification for keeping Derry. Offloading more will see more come in. Frustrating for us....Imagine the frustration for Lomas.

    We will not be paying all of his wages for a start. Things will start to gel more everyone will see. I have faith in the players that have been brought in and the manager too. It was always going to take time with a new manager coming in and trying to stamp his own style on players that are stale and have been at the club too long. There is no question that the club would have been tring to get rid of the deadwood but who would want our cast offs when they are not showing the right attitude at our club? I wouldn't thats for sure. We have been getting better and it is about having the right mix of young and old with the older setting an example to those who lack experience and hunger. Derry is still a good player and has a calming influence on the headless chickens around him at times we need him IMO. Give lomas and the lads a break and support them and soon you will see the draws turn into wins! COYL

    Great bit of business! Derry is a better defensive midfielder than abdou,wright or trotter (who is an attacking mid so his return is not a reason to offload Derry) so i think he is still needed at Millwall so that chaplow can remain attacking and play his best football. For people demanding a new striker aren't mcdonald,morison,keogh,easter or marquis enough? I would have thought a better quality striker than mcdonald or keogh would want higher wages than derry any wY

    Since he has been here we have started to play, I have watch him at every game and he is always one of our stand out players. He holds the ball, does not give it away cheaply, cool head, been there, seen it ,done it. And he releases Chaplow to get forward. And all those who want Lomas out, please look at the INS at the club. Morrison, Chaplow, Mc Donald, Bailey, Derry,Martin. These are players we could have only dreamed of last year. Also Woolford has started to look ok , something he was not , under Jacket. The OUTS are proving difficult to shift , which must tell us something.

    I really think that Millwall need to take a risk in the transfer market! Like a few years ago when they spent £130,000 on Steve Morison, which he later became a great success! ... Someone like Andre Gray from Luton would be a good addition and wouldn't take a massive lump out of our wages! COYL!!!

    I still think a right back was our main priority but I do agree with Nickola that KJ didn't do us any favours with the deadwood he has left us with on extended contracts who we can't shift. That certainly isn't SL's fault and if we can avoid relegation this season more of them will at least be out of contract next Summer to give him a chance to bring some more better quality players.

    I really beleive that what is happening is part of maybe a two year plan. Is it not strange that JB has now come up with money and does not seem too bothered about a budget. I think that SL said to JB give me two years to turn the club into a promotion side. First stop the rot that started last Christmas. He has brought in players that can do that, some may be a little older than we like, but they will do the job, I thought at brighton at last you could see where the team are going, and it was only stupid mistakes by Byfield and the defence that lost us previous games. Once settled and we start winning games and we lose some of the bagage we are carrying( I think SL thought he could get rid of these players quicker but was wrong). Then he will start to bring in some younger players with ambition and drive and then we can really push on. But I believe that we will finish this season above mid table, but next season we will push on for promotion. The next two home games are vital, four points from these and I think the corner will be turned.

      @rikkiatwall: A two year plan becomes a three year plan or more if you get relegated or most likely it becomes somebody else s plan. He needs to get wins and get them quick, no more paper talk, no more sound bites, no more B/S, no more moaning about budgets e.t.c e.t.c. e.t.c. We are a long way from finishing above mid table but if you're that confident, Single White Lion on here has a bet you might wanna buy!

    Good work keeping Derry, we need a disciplined old head and in theory his defensive qualities should allow our more attack minded midfield (Chaplow, Bailey,Trotter) to push forward and contribute some goals. Other than a quick right back I am pretty happy with our squad and will be relieved when the window closes so we can concentrate on getting the best out of the players we have invested in. IMO we have plenty of depth and experience in attacking positions so why bring in another forward so they can sit on the bench and waste our budget... Lets get behind Lomas and the much improved squad that we have got and hopefully the results will pick up to.... If things don't work out then least we'll have some funds to blow come January?!!

      How anyone cant see what Derry brings to the team shows how little some on here know about football. Also how some s*** for brains posters want Shittu (player of the season and best defender by a mile on Saturday) out of the club is embarrassing. We are losing £4M each year and have brought in some class players yet all some can is moan and moan. We are not Chelsea for f*** sake

        @bermondsey male choir: i could not agree more some people who post their views know nothing about football.Derry has tightened mid field in supporting bailey, helps the defense,allows chaplow freedom to go forward and link with the forwards.If the knockers look at woolfords goal against brighton[sorry fantastic goal] they will see sl is getting the mid field right.so when trotter comes back derry will allow trotter to attack from mid field with freedom as did chaplow with the brighton goal.my only worry is will trotter have chaplows good attitude or will he blow hot and cold and hide if things are not going his way.i now trotter was carrying a injury,but before his injury you could see when he started a game if he was up for it or not.

    I think Derry will prove a good signing over the season. The quality players that SL brought in were not fit, certainly not match fit anyway. I'm sure these players, Moro, Bailey, Lee & McDonald will improve over the weeks to come. I feel the squad, on the whole, is better than last seasons & has the sort of depth needed to sustain us in this division. It's great to have Fordey back in goal and once we get Delboy firing on all cylinders then we'll see how much these new signings have added to our team cos we'll have the whole squad fighting for those 11 places on the pitch.

    Happy with the contract extension. A needed signing in the right area. More worried about the fact that we did not manage to get rid of some more players except DNG. It seems to me that we have too many players that will be simply training with us and this might have a negative impact on the dressing room.

    I haven't read all of the posts on this feed, purely because i started to loose the will to f****** live!. I may sound like a broken record but with the exception of Chaplow & Bailey, DERRY has been our best signing so far this season imho so why is everyone so disapointed with his extension?. Him and Bailey have steadied the centre of midfield which has allowed Chaplow to become our best player. No team has carved us apart so far that because we have a tight midfield three in Bailey, Chaplow and Derry with other players making up the numbers. For me those three are the first names on the team sheet, closely followed by McDonald. Shittu had his best game of the season on Saturday, all the people writing him off clearly don't go to games, as last season he had a slow start and become our player of the season. The rest of the squad needs to take note and start to stake their claim for regular starts coz how i see it at the moment the rest are going through the motions and come January if they haven't improved, their contracts will be in a position where we can f*** them off for a nominal fee just like we did with Hendo last January. Im disappointed that we have this break as i thought we were gathering momentum.....COYL

    I think that people moaning on this site are unreal. The signings and players brought in by Steve Lomas, we couldn't of dreamed of under KJ. Although I know KJ done a great job at The Den and I don't begrudge him for leaving, just take a look.
    KJ signings include the likes of McLoid, Osbourne, Woolford, Thierry Racon, Jordan Stewart, I could go on.
    Lomas signings and players brought in compared to these are a world better. McDonald, Chaplow, Bailey, Derry, Bywater (hate to say it but he brings good competition for Forde).
    Point I'm making is look at the difference in quality he has attracted. And I'm happy enough in the way we are trying to play because Lomas is trying to get us to play the proper way, like Danny N'Guessens new side.
    I can personally see a mile off the difference in class on the pitch and the potential this season. Lomas is taking us the right way in my eyes. Just had a ropey start I know which is bad, but he and the team have my full backing as I am confident we will get somewhere.
    I think it's the strongest squad/team we have had since 2004 fa cup year. Good things to come. Watch this space. COYL MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

    He is a good solid midfielder and if QPR didn't have so much dough he would still be in their team!
