MILLWALL could pull the plug on a deal to sign Bristol City striker Steve Davies if talks over a transfer fee do not progress soon.
It is understood the Lions have now had several verbal offers for the 25-year-old knocked back by the League One side, who are holding out for around £500,000.
The Robins have been enquiring about possible replacements for Davies, indicating that they may be convinced to sell him, but so far they have been unwilling to compromise on a fee.
If the Robins refuse to budge, Steve Lomas could switch his focus to Leicester City's Martyn Waghorn or Middlesbrough's Scott McDonald.
Waghorn, who NewsAtDen revealed as a target last week, is on the fringes at the Foxes.
But the Midlands club have been preoccupied with a deal to offload Jermaine Beckford to Bolton and Millwall have found it difficult to engage them in serious negotiations.
In contrast, Boro are eager to offload McDonald, who is reported to be earning a staggering £30,000-a-week on Teesside. He has a year left on his contract and preliminary discussions about a severance package have taken place.
If McDonald is paid off by Middlesbrough, the Australian could be prepared to more than halve his wage demands – which would put him within Lomas' reach.
