Millwall manager excited by arrival of Watford's Fabbrini

IAN Holloway believes Millwall have signed a player of a "very, very high standard" in Watford's Diego Fabbrini.

Fabbrini is training with the Lions this morning after penning a 93-day loan deal and the Italian international could go straight into the side to face Ipswich tomorrow.

As revealed by NewsAtDen, Millwall fought off late interest from Bolton to land the 24-year-old, who Holloway says can operate in a number of different positions.

"He can play in the pocket, on the left or on the right – any one of the front three," Holloway said.

"He's a wonderful kid and he's wanted to come to us before but it didn't quite happen then.

"He's got another two-and-a-half years on his contract so we're borrowing him. He's played for the international side once before so I think he'll be a great signing for us.

"It's not easy to find players who are so eager to learn and this kid is as fresh as a daisy.

"Diego hasn't had much game time for Watford but he's been asking to play for their U21s, which shows a fantastic attitude.

"I met Diego on Tuesday – I really liked him, he wants to learn and he's already of a standard that is very, very high.

"He was bought for €4million when he was 21, which tells you a lot about his potential. He has been on our wall of targets all year."

      @nocalves: If he was as good as Ollie is saying why are only us and Bolton in for him, lets face it we are both at the wrong end of the table for anyone with ambition, but I hope he can prove me wrong, as I do regarding Holloway as well.
