Millwall complete loan swoop for Forest left back Harding


DAN Harding has joined Millwall on loan until the end of the season.

Harding, 31, passed a medical this morning before training with his new teammates for the first time.

Fellow new signing Paris Cowan-Hall also took part in his first session with the club on Monday following his switch from Wycombe Wanderers last week.

The Nottingham Forest left back is a direct replacement for Cardiff-bound Scott Malone, who is scheduled to travel to Wales tomorrow to complete a £100,000-transfer.

He will remain at The Den until the end of the season, when his contract at the City Ground expires, and he is available for Saturday's six-pointer against Blackpool.

Speaking to the club's official site, Harding explained how former Southampton teammate Richard Chaplow played a role in his move to SE16: "Chappy had a lot of good things to say about the club.

"And of course I already knew what a top manager Ian Holloway is, supported by very good coaching staff.

"For myself, this is a great opportunity to get some regular first team football again, and I'm looking forward to playing my part in the second half of the season.

"Every game is a big one in this League, with pressure for success increasing every year it seems. But I do believe that if we can string two or three wins together we can start moving up the table quickly and things will look a lot more positive."

    I wonder if we committed to buying him when we signed this loan deal, like we did with Easter? Anyway, welcome to the club Dan, we need experienced quality defenders at the moment and if you deliver on that front we will be right behind you.

        @colin66: So we just need to make sure we tie him up early if he looks good.

            why do people persist with this chris wood stuff - he did not want to sign for us so we could not have had him for half a million - you cannot make hypothetical signings
