KENNY Jackett has revealed he could pursue both permanent and loan signings in his bid to replace striker Chris Wood during the January transfer window.

The Lions are trying to thrash out terms with Hull City to sign Aaron Mclean on a temporary basis until the end of the season, while Jackett has made a £250,000-offer for Reading's Simon Church.

And Jackett says all possible solutions will be under consideration over the next month – providing he can find value for money.



He told NewsAtDen: "The bottom line is always how good the player is – it's a good signing if it works out. There's no right or a wrong in terms of signing permanent players or loans.

"Currently, in the balance of our squad we only can i buy lexapro have one loan player. Sometimes you can have too many but at the moment we have a good base of players who are here permanently.

"So that gives us an opportunity. But it very much depends on what other clubs say when we make enquiries.  We're trying to get value for money and players that complement our current squad.



"Some are looking to sell players, others are quite happy to loan them out for four months and see where they are in the summer.

"The quality of the player and what the other club says come into it. But as a club, we're not against signing players on loan or permanently."

    Is that true that Aaron Mclean is going to Ipswich, because Steve Bruce won't lend Aaron to another play off contender?

    KJ always gets average players who nobody wanted and gets them sorted.

      We have only currently got one borrowed player Adam Smith so we are doing ok with our own players. If and its a big one anyone we bought now got us into the Prem they may not be good enough to stay so the clever money would be on a proven championship quality loan. Or a good young player with potential.

    I think we need to be honest with ourselves and realise maybe with the money available to us compared to other top teams in our league we can't really compete.... So maybe we should be grateful Kenny can draft in quality players even if they are on loan,if he can do the same this January who knows what can happen....

    I would sign Church. Having loan players is fine if limited to 1 or 2 but if we have too many how many Millwall legends will there be in the future. Prefer not to lose our identity. Look at Ipswich, they might be winning again and moving away from the drop zone (which short term is fine) but they have now signed 13 players on loan this season so far!
