Millwall boss: Cowan-Hall will be "first of many" signings

IAN Holloway says Paris Cowan-Hall will be "the first of many" new signings at Millwall this month.

The Lions will officially complete a deal for the Wycombe Wanderers winger tomorrow when the January transfer window opens for business.

Cowan-Hall has been on Holloway’s radar since August and the Den boss made his move for the 24-year-old several weeks ago.

Holloway has made no secret of the fact that he is looking to strengthen his forward options but a left back and a centre half are also on his list of priorities.

As part of the agreement that will see Cowan-Hall become a Millwall player, youngster Fred Onyedinma's loan spell with Wycombe has been extended until the end of the season.

"Paris is six years older than Fred, I really like him and he’s on the up," Holloway said.

"I hope our fans will see what a great attitude he has got as well – he will jump, chase, get crosses in and he's fresh.

"It shows the work that we've been trying to do behind the scenes and it was important to keep it quiet because other clubs wanted him.

"Luckily he's chosen us and we've loaned them Fred.

"I think the fans will take to him straight away because he doesn't stop working hard.

"He's our first signing in January and he'll be the first of many."

    That's what we want to hear 'Ollie' , keep this up and bring some New Good Blood into MFC. That way, by the time we go up to Blackpool FC we will have a Team that can. "BITE " . We will be there to see them as usual. ( NOLU, WDC ).

        @Jim28: Yep, that's right Jim28, but we need to off - load the ' Rubbish' that's been pulling on Millwall Shirts, and get some good players who Don't pass back to Forde to whack upfield, where we just lose possession, again . Also the so- called Coaches that fail to tell the players this Require Addressing immediately. ( NOLU, WDC ).ps. 'IN OLLIE WE TRUST'

    If that is the case Ollie then don't stifle him with tactical nonsense. Let him take people on and get balls in the box rather than stop turn around and pass back which seems to be whatall our ppromising wingers have started doing under your regime. Is this fella cup tied or can we expect to see him tomorrow? Miiiii

    I am all for getting new players and hoping it improves our situation.
    What bothers me is getting rid of some of the waste of time.
    Otherwise we will have a squad so big it will be just a waste in wages ?

      @Longfield Lion: I gotta say that I am more excited about who is going than who might or might not be coming in. there are players that just are right for this club and they are not helping Ollie build team spirit within the squad as a result. They have had half a season to show what they are capable of and they now need to move on.

    IH has already made many signings. 13 by my count and only one is a regular starter so forgive me if I am not overly enthusiastic about this news. I would rather see quality than quantity especially as the quantity is always from L1 or Conf or player out of contract (for a good reason)

      @Gglasshalffull
      I share your concern's about player's IH has brought in, imo IH over complicate's thing's,although i have been very critical of him ,i am getting off his back and i just hope the new player's brought in are allowed to play their own game within a settled team and formation.
      Some people on here are saying let's clear out the dross in the jan window to free up the wage bill,well unless another club actually want's them we have to pay them till their contract's run out,
      So let us all get behind the player's ,let's hope IH see's the error of his way's and start's to pick a settled side and sensible tactic's,that the team he put's out can implement.

    We will see just how good our players are when no other clubs come in for them can you remember the last time any club wanted any of our squad ? I think it was Rotherham after Beevers possibly oh no just remembered feeney and trots who have had made a massive impact at Bolton .
    Lets just get shot of all these underperforming ungrateful wannabe footballers
