SCOTT McDonald travelled to London on Sunday to discuss a two-year deal with Millwall after Middlesbrough agreed to terminate the final year of his contract.
Boro boss Tony Mowbray confirmed over the weekend that McDonald was set to leave the Riverside Stadium and a move to the Lions now appears to be little more than a formality.
The 29-year-old was earning a reported £30,000-a-week on Teesside but is ready to take a huge pay cut to join Steve Lomas' side.
Signing McDonald, who hit 13 goals in the Championship last year, would represent a major coup for Lomas, who has been on the lookout for a proven goalscorer to partner Steve Morison in his new-look strikeforce.
The Australian international has scored 132 goals in 292 career league appearances to date.
