Hooiveld to face Reading after finalising Millwall loan move


SOUTHAMPTON centre back Jos Hooiveld has joined Millwall on loan for the rest of the season and is set to make his debut against Reading tomorrow.

Hooiveld, 31, passed a medical at the Lions' training ground on Monday morning before putting pen-to-paper on a deal until the summer, when his contract with the Saints expires.

The Dutch defender has been on loan at Norwich since August but the Canaries agreed to cancel his stay at Carrow Road, allowing boss Ian Holloway to make his move.

Speaking to the club's official site, Hooiveld said: "I want as much success as possible – as many wins and as many clean sheets as we can – which is just what every footballer hopes for

"It is very important (to be playing regularly) and I'm no different from anyone else.

"I had a very nice and positive conversation with the manager. We had a good connection.

"Every game from now on is massive. It isn't just one game that decides it – there are 20."

    Looks a good signing only worrying thing is how come he couldnt get in at norwich, and no other takers? Hoping he still has class and proves a steal of a signing, not worth getting hopes up when supporting millwall though, as they usually come crashing back down to earth! At least fresh faces at last and a new squad, needed this so badly. Cant wait to see PCH in action tommorow hopefully
