MILLWALL have expressed an interest in QPR midfielder Shaun Derry.
Lions manager Steve Lomas approached the West London club on Monday asking to take the 35-year-old on loan, but the terms of the deal have yet to be agreed.
Speaking on Sky Sports News, Derry admitted: "There is a link there, but obviously I played last night for 30 minutes [in the Capital One Cup] and enjoyed playing.
"I'm 35 now, I'm not 25 and a guy who likes to sit on the bench. I spent a lot of last year on the bench watching from the sidelines, and I'm a footballer who likes to play.
"If there was to be an opportunity for me to play elsewhere then that is something I'd really have to look into quite deeply, but as it stands at the moment I am a QPR player and a very committed one.
"Me and Harry Redknapp have had a frank discussion last night and, although I am a QPR player, I am very open to playing football.
"I don't want to be wasting my final years, not that I feel I am anywhere near the scrapheap, but for the short-term playing games is really at the forefront of my mind
"I really missed playing a number of games last season. If, and it is a big if, I was to be given an opportunity at Millwall or anywhere else for that matter, it is something I would definitely have to look into."
R's boss Redknapp is happy for Derry to depart Loftus Road but wants Millwall to pay a significantly larger percentage of his wages than they initially offered.
Last week, Derry tipped the Lions to challenge for promotion this season. He said: "I feel they've made some good signings.
"They've got a new manager there in Steve Lomas and I've been to see them a few times; they're a very passionate bunch down at The Den.
"But the signings they've made are Championship quality and good, good players and I expect them to finish a lot higher than they did last year."
