MILLWALL are set to sign Derby County striker Nathan Tyson on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The 30-year-old will put pen-to-paper on the temporary switch on Thursday morning with a view to going straight into the Lions' squad for their home match against Burnley on Saturday.

Tyson has scored five goals in 17 appearances for the Rams this campaign but is on the fringes of Nigel Clough's squad.



Clough said: "At Nathan’s age, he doesn’t want to be sitting on the bench week after week and we understand that.

"We have Jamie Ward, Conor Sammon, Theo Robinson, Michael Jacobs and Mason Bennett all vying for a spot in attack, so Nathan would’ve continued to have limited chances to start.

"We feel this is a good chance for him to go and play regularly for the rest of the season."

Tyson, who is eligible to play in the FA Cup, has been on manager Kenny Jackett's radar for the past two years and held talks with Millwall following his exit from Nottingham Forest in June 2011.

    Saw this coming and I'm not happy about it! Lets not forget this tool chose Derby over us not that long ago when he was available on a free that choice was made based on money! I don't rate the player but since he's with us I'm fully behind him and I hope he proves me wrong! In KJ we trust!

    Noooooo WE NEED TO SIGN SOMEONE on a contract because if he does really well then derby will want him back we need to sign a young player that we can turn into a proper millwall player but instead we signed(on loan) a 30 year old player who didnt want to come to us when we were interested in signing him not sure about this one kj but still in kj we trust

    Decent loan signing, particularly as cover/competition for Hendo who has struggled with injuries and faces his court appearance in March. I reckon there's a good chance KJ will sign another younger striker before the window closes if he can find the right player at the right price. Tyson has scored five in five starts this season so the guy certainly deserves a chance

    Clough says Tyson going out to play regular first team football? Has the #10 shirt but just can't see him being first choice.

    He's a good player, I reckon this could be a real coup of a signing, he will be depsrate to succeed at his age. If we get promoted you bet he will want to tay, if we don't then he can go back to Derby's bench. I think loaning this player was asmart move, and will keep him hungry.

    Not the signing I was hoping for - maybe Kenny can get the best out of him!

    We need someone on a permanant contract, look at what happened with Chris Woods! If he doesn't do well then we won't want him but if he bangs a load of goals in then Derby will want him back!! Better than nothing though, lets hope he can keep the big push going. In KJ we trust.

    What if we had just sign him on a perm and he turned out s****, loan is the right move for a 30 yr old player also we know Jackett is still working on other signings.

    Wood was also 10 years younger than this guy, so I think Tyson is a greater risk and he is probably developed into the player he will be, so I still think loan is good as it reduces our risk of taking on another Jay Simpson,....and what a bad permanent signing he would have been! Loans have their benefits.
