Millwall talks with Charlton frontman Church put on hold

TALKS between Millwall and Charlton striker Simon Church are on hold.

The Lions agreed a loan deal for the Wales international earlier in the week and manager Ian Holloway spoke with the 26-year-old on Wednesday morning.

Church agreed in principle to the move but personal terms have not yet been finalised.

It is understood the Addicks frontman is eager to line up a permanent contract at The Den for next season, whereas Millwall's preference is for a straightforward loan.

The deal is not dead and could be resurrected later in the transfer window, but Church won't join in time for the Lions' game at Blackpool tomorrow as planned.

    To the end of the transferee window would be good.

      In the last twelve months Holloway has signed Wilkinson, Hoyte, Williams, Upson, Jackson, Edwards, Gregory, Webster, Fuller, Gueye, Martinez, Briggs & Ranegie, does anyone really think his new transfer dealings will improve the team? Not me that's for sure.

      With his tactics and constant team changes it doesn't matter who he selects. Rather than make wholesale changes I would prefer JB to make one and get in a Manager who can at least get the best out of his players and have a settled team.

      How IH is still here is beyond me.

    If we sign Church we're relegated 100%.
