Millwall boss: Some deadline-day targets "didn't work out"

IAN Holloway says Millwall could look to strengthen in the loan market after admitting that deals for some of their deadline-day targets fell through.

The Lions drafted in Leeds midfielder Michael Tonge and Tottenham keeper Jordan Archer as the January window closed on Monday but Holloway had hoped to make further additions.

Talks with Blackburn Rovers striker Luke Varney broke down, while Nottingham Forest winger Jamie Paterson was another target who eluded Millwall.

In total, Holloway made eight signings during the transfer window, with another eight players leaving the club.

"We have been incredibly busy this month with so many deals in and out of the club," Holloway told the club's official site.

"There were some more targets that we had in mind for the past couple of days but they didn't work out for one reason or another.

"The chairman and Andy (Ambler) have been excellent every step of the way and the club couldn't have done anything more over the past month.

"Things needed to be changed around and we have managed to do that.

"I really like the look of all the players we have brought in and I think we are well equipped to improve our position in the league over the next few months.

"If there are any more holes to fill then we can look to do something in the loan window if needs be.

"As always it is about the type of people you sign and I think everyone we have brought in has fantastic ability and mentality."

      @lucusmckeus: haha that made me laugh. Truth is they would have been desperation signings and probably better that we loan someone and work on better targets to be signed in the Summer
