BURNLEY have paid a six-figure loan fee to sign Millwall striker Josh McQuoid for three months.

NewsAtDen also understands that the Clarets will pay the entirety of the 22-year-old's wages over the coure of his 93-day stay at Turf Moor.

Lions boss Kenny Jackett hinted after Saturday's 3-1 win at Barnsley that his decision to loan McQuoid to a Championship rival had been financially motivated.

McQuoid, meanwhile, has revealed he still sees his long-term future at The Den despite appearing to fall out of favour.

"I want to play as much [at Burnley] as I can and hopefully get some goals, but this is just a loan," he told the Daily Star, speaking after his Clarets debut against Derby. "I see my future at Millwall.

"It was a bit nervous – like my first day at school again. But it was good to be involved because I haven’t played in a while.

"Out of the sides I’ve seen and played against, Burnley are up there with the best. They have a good chance of figuring in the play-offs."

    with a bit of luck he will get a consistent run and rebuild his confidence, has the potential to be a good player and sitting on the bench has done him no favours.
