IAN Holloway says it has already been decided that John Marquis will be leaving Millwall in the summer.
Marquis, who is on loan at Gillingham, has scored five goals in his last seven appearances in League One, prompting calls from fans to bring the 22-year-old back to The Den.
But the striker's contract will not be renewed when it expires in the summer, according to Holloway.
Marquis' recent form is reported to have attracted admiring glances from Birmingham, Sheffield Wednesday, Preston and Sheffield United.
But Holloway, echoing the forward's recent comments to the Kent press, said: "We've had to make a decision and he didn't want to come back either – John felt his time was up here.
"The club should've loaned him out a couple of years ago to get him to this scenario."
In-form Fred Onyedinma, who has scored four goals since January for Wycombe, will also spend the remainder of the campaign out on loan.
But Holloway has big plans for the 18-year-old at Millwall.
"We're trying to produce players," added the Lions boss. "We're at such a high level that they need to go out on loan.
"Fred is good enough to play well in League Two and he's priming himself to play for us in the future.
"The last thing we needed was his replacement getting injured but [keeping him at Wycombe] is still the right thing to do.
"He's getting better and we'll have him back in the summer. We can't bring him back anyway because it was part of the Paris Cowan-Hall deal."
