SHAUN Derry has only been at Millwall for a matter of days – but he is already sold on the idea of a permanent move.
The midfielder made his Lions debut against Ipswich Town last weekend after signing on a month's loan from QPR.
And Derry is hoping to impress sufficiently to earn a longer stay with Steve Lomas' side.
He said: "Initially it is just a month, 28 days, but I would have jumped at it being longer. At the same time, I fully understand what everyone's position is in the short-term. But I want to be here, I really do want to be here.
"I've only been here a couple of days but I have loved coming in for training and it's only 15 minutes away from home. That is a massive benefit for me as well because I'm used to sitting in the car for an hour and a half to get over to QPR.
"There were some days when you have a stinker on the motorway and you're playing catchup as soon as you get into training. I feel I have more energy here."
Derry will hold talks with QPR manager Harry Redknapp at the end of the month but the 35-year-old's future almost certainly lies away from Loftus Road.
And his chances of playing regularly for The R's will become even slimmer if Tottenham midfielder Scott Park completes a move to West London as expected.
"Harry has been good as gold to me," Derry said. "He has told me to come here, get some games, enjoy my football and see what happens in a month's time.
"That's as far as things have gone with QPR. My agenda is slightly different because now I'm here I want to be here. I see what Steve is trying to do and would love to be part of it."
