MILLWALL have agreed a loan deal for Leeds midfielder Michael Tonge.

Tonge, who is known to Lions assistant Nigel Gibbs from their time together at Elland Road, will join the Lions until the end of the season.

The 31-year-old will not be eligible to play against his parent club when Millwall travel to Yorkshire a week on Saturday.

A combative midfielder, boss Ian Holloway believes Tonge can act as a defensive shield in front of his back four.

Holloway had been looking to strengthen his engine room with Nicky Bailey continuing to receive treatment on an ongoing calf problem.

      @sadlier89: Martinez/Upson are very different players to Tonge. Tonge will get stuck into a tackle and do that Nicky Bailey job of allowing players to get further up the pitch like Williams, Upson and Martinez to create more chances....

      I'm not sold on Tonge, we will have to wait and see!!

        @Bradders: Tongue was a great young player in his Blades days. He is a proper Millwall type of player. Good signing.

          I always liked Tonge. He has always stood out when he has played for us. Some cover for Williams is not a bad idea. We missed him terribly when he has injured and he picked unother yellow on Saturday so a ban is probably on the horizon. It can't hurt to have players of Tonge's quality around. 31 - what is the problem with that? As an athlete he should be in his prime.
