Southampton defender could swap Norwich City for Millwall


MILLWALL are discussing a loan deal for Southampton centre back Jos Hooiveld.

Hooiveld is currently in the middle of a season-long stay at Norwich City but that could be cut-short to allow the former Dutch youth international to join the Lions instead.

The 31-year-old has featured just six times for the Canaries so far this term but they are funding a significant portion of his wages.

A possible solution is being negotiated between the three clubs.

One scenario could be that Norwich continue to pay a smaller percentage of Hooiveld's package and allow Millwall to pick up the rest of the tab.

That arrangement would see Ian Holloway gain a defender, Norwich make a saving and keep Hooiveld off of Southampton's wage bill until the summer.

The situation is likely to become clearer before the end of the week.

        @lowdown: maybe their board has been getting tips from our board. It sounds very much like a Millwall thing to do

      @SE17 Lion: Maybe not but he's got to be better than Shittu and Dunne.
      Let's hope the 'Hoo' is here soon cos we need a Centre half asap.
