Millwall and Colchester discussing loan deal for Briggs

MATTHEW Briggs is a loan target for Colchester United, NewsAtDen understands.

Briggs was ommitted from Millwall's squad for their game against Ipswich Town on Saturday and he has now been the subject of an approach from the League One side.

The left back's most recent league appearance for the Lions was in the 6-1 loss at Norwich and he looks set to play second fiddle to Dan Harding for the rest of the season.

The 23-year-old signed a one-year deal at The Den last summer so a six-month loan move would take him to the end of his contract in SE16.

    Good. Let him go on loan with a view to a permanent move. Been awful for us.

    What a good signing he has been ?

      @Longfield Lion: Williams and Edwards - the only players out of the twenty-odd players brought in by Holloway so far that have looked the business. Yet it's still all Lomas's fault.

        @Micky Lions: I believe that Webster is the only other Holloway signing that wasn't a loan or a one year deal and the jury is still out on him. Gueye was a good one. Carlos Edwardes was a good one. The ones that haven't worked have been one year deals like Briggs and Fuller where you take a punt and see what happens. Nothing wrong with that. IN terms of permanent signings on longer deals he has got it right so far.

          @junkmale: I'd say the jury is also still out on Gregory and you forgot Upson, who's not lived up to expectations. But not including the latest batch, Holloway has still made over twenty signings with very few being up to standard - including Garvan, Bessone, Jackson, Campbell, Fredericks, Wilkinson, Martinez, Ranegie, Briggs and Maierhofer. Not to mention the madness of giving Marquis and Easter new signings.

          I don't know how much all these signings cost the club, but it hasn't improved the squad or performances on the pitch. For me it cheapens representing Millwall and just shows how poor Holloways judgement has become.
