MILLWALL have entered the race to sign Dutch striker Kevin van Veen from Dutch second division side FC Oss.

The 23-year-old, who has scored 16 goals in 20 appearances this season, had looked set to join Scunthorpe United but the Lions have now joined the chase.

van Veen left the Netherlands for England this afternoon with the intention of discussing terms at Glanford Park but he'll now have options to consider.

Championship rivals Rotherham United are also understood be weighing up a bid.

Millwall's chief scout Mick Harford saw the forward score a hat-trick against Almere City FC last Friday but it initially seemed that the Lions would not be following up their interest.

But Ian Holloway is now looking to bring in van Veen before Monday's transfer deadline. To do so, he will have to match Scunthorpe's bid of around £250,000.

van Veen was prolific last season too, hitting 20 goals in 29 appearances for third-tier outfit JVC Cuijk.

    This could be a great swoop which we are not used to seeing at the den. Normally players swooped from under our noses and lost. But this looks like a cracking signiture to get. Fingers crossed and hope Jos can have an influence on his decision.

    COYL!!!!
