MANAGER Steve Lomas believes Millwall's squad needs "an injection of fresh faces" if the club is to make progress this season.
The Lions boss was speaking after his side's 1-1 draw with Brighton on Saturday.
Lomas has made seven signings since taking over at The Den but wants to strengthen his squad further ahead of Monday's transfer deadline.
He said: "We would love to add a bit of fresh blood. Andy Ambler and the chairman have been brilliant, but I believe, if we're to take this club forward, we need some fresh blood.
"I know budgets are always a thing, but when I came in probably 85% of the budget had already been spent. I think we need an injection of new faces, if I'm being honest.
"Whether that can happen or not [I don't know]. There are too many players at this club that have become stale, and if we're going to take this great club, with great fans, forward, we definitely need an injection of fresh faces.
"Monday is sort of irrelevant because seven days later we can go to the loan market. We've actively been seeking to move a few on, but I've come up against a brick wall on that front.
"Me and Andy have been working very hard on trying to do that. It's not just one player, we need a few if I'm being really honest. Hopefully we can shift a few on and be creative.
"The chairman has been brilliant, he's said, 'listen Steve, be creative and come back to me.' He's been first-class him and Andy."
