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."
