Hoyte opens door for permanent move to Millwall in January

LOANEE Justin Hoyte has admitted his Millwall move could be made permanent.

The right back has joined the Lions from Middlesbrough until January but preliminary discussions about a long-term deal have already been held.

He said: "We'll how things go until January because that's all that is in place for the moment, but if I do well then it is possible that something can be sorted out. I am looking forward to the future again.



"Attacking is part of my game and anyone who has seen me play will know that. On the other hand I'm a defender first but if I get the opportunity to go forward, I will."

Boss Steve Lomas added: "Justin is an attack-minded full back and he brings us experience and quality.

"He fits the profile of players we are looking for – between the age of 24 and 28 and, we believe, still in their prime and with plenty of years ahead of them.



"Whichever system you play, the full backs have got to be able to join in the play. I've always liked my full backs to get forward.

"But we want to keep more clean sheets moving forward – we can't rely on scoring two or three goals every week to win games."

Meanwhile, Lomas has challenged Shane Lowry to make the most of Scott Malone's injury.

"We are very fortunate to have Shane," Lomas said. "One man's misfortune is another's opportunity so he now has an opportunity to get in the team and show what he can do.

"We believe there is a good player in there and he now has a chance to stake a claim for a regular starting berth."

      @dpendet: This is similar to many of Lomas's signings. Once a big-money signing, whose career has gone a bit flat and has much to prove.

    So SL is challenging Shane Lowry to make the left back spot his own. That tells me that Scott Malone is clearly number one choice for that place and rightly so.
    Signing Justin Hoyte sounds positive and exciting but I'm an old fashioned Dunney fan. I hope the move works well for Millwall 1st , but we don't forget a Millwall legend in Dunney too soon....

    Along with Scott McDonald, these are the types of signings we didn't dare dream about a few years ago. Big shout to Lomas and Berylson. Moving forward...

      @TheDiceman:I wouldn't get too excited about that, All the players seem to be near retirement when we get them.

    Probably a good signing but a permanent deal in January is a bit soon. Season long loan and if he's up to the challenge get him on board permanently for next season. Could have our fingers burnt otherwise.

    Still need a new centre half Mr L, even a loanee would give us the cover we need.

    Well he's certainly got an incentive to play well if there's a chance of a move in January. Given our defensive record I hope he doesn't try too hard to impress going forward as that plan could back fire spectacularly. Must remember that defending is his main role, go forward when appropriate.

    Wouldn't mind signing one size fitz hall simply to have that song available to us.

      @Block 8: err - lee martin@lukesmithmfc: not sure about these two. One size will only be cover when
      Perhaps we could have got someone in to dislodge DS - however beevers will be back soon. As for JH, time will tell but there must be a reason borough are offloading everyone to is!

    I think we're missing a left footed winger/midfielder. If Woolford's injured or in poor form , who replaces him ?

    Lomas said in the article above that he wants players between the age of 24 and 28, Hoyte will be 29 in 2 weeks time. He also said we can't rely on scoring two or three goals every week to win games,I think he means score 2 every week and draw. I wish he would keep quiet and manage the team.
