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.

    Not counting any chickens here, but would be a great signing, handy in both boxes. I have started to fear us getting a corner, as within a minute or so, a goal goes in at the other end.

    our wonderfully spirited defeat by Ipswich (where they could have scored 6 and we didn't have a real chance in the second half) is looking good - they are 3-1 down to Brighton

    wise up about just how bad we are - I will take hooiveld and about 6 others

      @timchimes: i didnt rate ipswich much on saturday, not as good as bournemouth or even brentford, i suppose one way of looking at is that the old cliche that anyone can beat anyone in this league might be true , looking at our fixtures in feb i would say we need 12 points from those six games or we might end up needing snookers again like last year

        any one with a modicum of sense

        what is the point of being deluded about this - look at things objectively - he is rebuilding the whole squad mid-season - who does that? - We all want to think the best but how can you based on what you have seen this season - you have to realise just how bad you have to be to go down - look at last year and how bad we were for most of it and stayed up - look at Brum last year. I think they went 15 home games without winning and stayed up

        @nocalves: I don't understand why anyone thinks we have to stick with such an awful manager? Birmingham, Brighton, Fulham and Bolton all seem to have found better alternatives this season. Our board have made some bad appointments in the past, but are you telling me they can't find anyone better than this current fool?

    sheff utd have kept spurs down to 1 shot on target in 70 mins - ask yourself this - what would be the chances of us doing that? -

    what structure and discipline do you thing we can display that keeps opponents out for any reasonable time - Holloway even said himself I thought they (Ipswich) were going to score every time they attacked - how can things be that bad? I said before Ipswich if we can keep them to one goal we have a chance - you would think the first objective would be to defend en-masse and get some confidence from a clean sheet, but no 2 goal in 15 mins - that is why I find it almost impossible to be optimistic

        we lost 9 mill last year - JB is pumping in more this year - by next year all our money under fair play will be spent for the cycle - what happens if we go down ? zero to spend - You know the score, Coventry etc.

            @nocalves: About 99.9% of supporters were pleased with Holloway's appointment, I was part of the 0.1% but desperately wanted him to succeed. I'd say that it's about 50/50 now judging by the likes and dislikes but there's only one camp that's growing and that's because Holloway has done nothing to earn anybody's support. People who blame Jackett are deluded, he left 18 months ago and both Lomas and Holloway were/are still picking his players. You accuse me and others of not answering the question of who would replace Holloway. It's irrelevant at the moment as we all know he is not going anywhere. You and all of the other Holloway supporters still haven't answered the question re why was Lomas sacked? I think this is because you all know the question is loaded and that all the reasons you can possibly give (other than the Wet Spam BS) currently apply to Holloway. If the reason that we can't sack Holloway is down to cost then that is a sad reflection of the type of appointment we made in the first place, over rated, over hyped and over paid. I want to be hugely wrong about this, but all current evidence suggests otherwise. Negative or realistic?

    Not so keen on this 1, really wrong age. Our fingers have been burnt so many times by older players looking to get just 1 last pay day & this looks like it could happen again? I understand there are exceptions to this rule but Carlos Edwards name in a positive list against so many who have got a contract & then put there feet up in the treatment room worries me!
    We are crippled financially by a load of unwanted washed up old pro's mugging Berylson for a wage so why risk getting into this position again?
    I'm sorry to sound negative, i do understand we need some composure at the back & an experienced player to help teach & take the pressure off Sid, i worry too many have pinned their hopes on him too soon, we don't want to ruin him but i think someone about 4 years younger would be best?
    I hope i'm wrong!!!
