Giant striker Maierhofer wants to make Millwall return

STEFAN Maierhofer has asked to return to Millwall in January.

The giant Austrian striker, who helped guide the Lions to Championship safety last season, is currently playing for SC Wiener Neustadt.

Maierhofer was offered the chance to stay at The Den in the summer but made big wage demands. He was also confident of securing a move to a higher level.

But an agent claiming to look after the 6ft 7in targetman has been pestering Millwall in recent weeks about a return to south London in the New Year.

Boss Ian Holloway will take Maierhofer – dubbed the Hof by fans – into consideration but has not yet decided whether to pursue the issue any further.

The club say they are not currently discussing a contract with him.

Speaking in the Austrian press a couple of weeks ago, Maierhofer said of his future: "I want to go abroad again. We will see what develops in January,"

    Come back, deal to end of the season, basic low wage but goal bonus?

      @longsuttonlion: This sack of tripe is not the way forward. I see Ollie is also quoted as saying " That's hopefully the first of many" following the Cowan-Hall signing. Now that's a bit more like it. Then we can get rid of all the crap. The Hoff is crap already, we don't need him on board thanks.

      Pay him peanuts, make him score goals to earn his money, no one else is scoring apart from Gregory who has to win his own headers.
