IAN Holloway believes the versatility of Michael Tonge will strengthen Millwall's chances of staying in the Championship for another season.
Tonge joined the Lions on loan from Leeds before Monday's transfer deadline to give Holloway another option in midfield.
And speaking about the 31-year-old's arrival, Holloway said:
"Tonge can play anywhere in midfield – on the left, on the right, sitting or attacking – and that's vital because Nicky Bailey and Angel Martinez are coming back from injuries.
"Hopefully they will come back and I'll be spoilt for choice but Tonge is really experienced and really wanted to come.
"Nigel Gibbs worked with him at Leeds so he knows him really well and I'm delighted to be working with him.
"He's been a breathe of fresh air in training already and his running stats are very impressive."
