MIDDLESBROUGH right back Justin Hoyte is set to join Millwall on loan.

Hoyte trained with the Lions on Monday with a view to completing a temporary switch to The Den tomorrow.

NewsAtDen first revealed Hoyte was on Steve Lomas' radar back in August and it appears his pursuit of the 28-year-old has finally borne fruit.



The former Arsenal trainee has made four appearances for Boro this season.

    Hilarious. We're going to sign a right back on an "emergency" basis. We have 3 right backs! Just shows you Lomas just doesn't rate Dunne or Smith. Should be a decent addition though, looks better than what we already have.

      The three we have aren't doing the biz and they've all had their chance.
      Now......Just need a left back to cover Malone and a centre half.

    I remember when this guys name came up earlier in the season and the Middlesborough fans were rubbing their hans at the prospect of getting shot of him, I seem to remember them saying he was another non trier and didn't like to put a shift in.
    Obviously we shall see.

      @Sealion:
      I remember Boro fans saying good riddance to Bailey and McDonald too and I am more than happy to have them both at Millwall. One of the many great things about us Millwall fans is that we will not allow him to go through the motions and not put a shift in without letting him know it's not the way we do things. I am glad that he is joining us. I know he is decent going forward as well. I am going to get behind him from the off. It's what I do when they wear our shirt. Happy days. COYL.

        @wall2wall: Well said wall, at 28 as well if it all went ok he would have a year or two unlike Mr Derry and the other one from QPR last year, but as already stated seems strange getting another right back when we seem to have a suplus of them hanging around the club, picking up a wage packet.

        So will this mean that the end could be in site for a few of the right backs at the club or does SL like an even number to choose from.

            @Davey: Not gone yet Davey, we are still coughing up part of his premier league wages, so the sooner the more SL will have to use in January eh.

          @Barnlion:
          I am always happy getting new players in if they improve the squad and I think Hoyte will. As you rightly say 28 is not a bad age and competition for places can only be good for the position.

        @wall2wall: @wall2wall: The only comments I saw from Boro supporters concerning McD and Bailey were that they were p***** with the manager for letting them go and telling us we had acquired a good couple of players,
        but I take your point and hope he can add to the side. Once a player puts our shirt on he is one of us until he proves otherwise.

          I read quite a few Sealion that said that they were passed it and they wasn't disappointed to be losing Bailey and Mcdonald for that reason. Both of them players can still do a job at this level for me. Hoyte obviously has talent and hopefully something to prove still. As you rightly say we shall soon see.

    Good move imo right back position has been an achilles heel for us so far this season. Let's give him encouragement and support and not start criticising him before he has even kicked a ball for the first team.

    I think it's an astute signing. It's clear we lack quality at right-back, Smith proved this against Burnley. Otherwise we have a pretty solid side. With Malone injured for the next month or so, Hoyte can also operate at left-back and considering he's a London lad, he might be motivated to kick start his career with us, rather than being stuck in Middlesboro'

    He's got pace and not a lot else but that makes him twice the player of jack smith - not rating him at all right now!

    As a former Arsenal trainee we might at least get a defender who can pass to a team mate.

    As the name suggests, no malice just want to fill you in on Hoyte.

    Very pacey attack minded RB. Who when on his game can go past anyone in this league. Will run all and put balls into the box. A massive confidence player when it's going right won't stop running for 90mins. It's no real surprise that our decline started the same time as his injury last season.
    However when not on his game resembles a headless chicken with one leg and no end product that can last a while (like 3/4 of the season before last) Personally I like him and think you've got a good player there.

    To put the McDonald/Bailey thing to bed, they are both good championship players. However at Boro they were on premiership wages that was killing us in any transfer windows (legacy of Gordon Strachen). McDonald is a busy striker that will poach 10-12 goals a season bailey is a attacking midfielder like a hand grenade, in the sense of a match winner but for which side is not always clear.
    I was sorry to see them go as players, but McDonald £35,000 pw and Bailey £25,000pw so glad to get rid if them

    Anyway I know for a fact, come the 21st Dec these players will come back to bite us firmly in the A$$

      @borofaninpeace: well if he puts in what you say at the begining then he will be ok, however if its the latter then he will soon know from the wall faitful about it i can assure you. If this is the honest thoughts of borro fans then im happy with what you are saying. As for bailey lol yup a little grenade there mate and macD is a pest for defences.

      Thanks for taking the time to post on here mate and i do hope your right about the 21st dec haha

      @borofaninpeace:
      Cheers for the post. I look forward to Hoyte bombing down the right hand side. Just what we need in my opinion. It can only help him to settle with Bailey and McDonald already here. Good luck for your season apart from 2 games of course.

    In theory this signing makes perfect sense - Hoyte is exactly the type of right back that SL needs and that we don't have, and on paper he fits much better the tactical plan. An attacking speedy full back that can cover the whole wing playing behind a winger/striker that rather cuts in than stays next to the flank. Pretty much the same with Malone/Woolford on the left.
    Let's hope that things will work as intended.

    Fact of the day.......Whilst playing for Arsenal , he became the first Englishman to score at the Emirates.
    He's a Londoner , so this might be a great opportunity for him to come back down south.
