IAN Holloway is meeting with two of his summer transfer targets this morning as Millwall step up their search for new recruits.
Holloway will have face-to-face discussions with four free agents over the next fortnight and will sit down with two of them today.
The Lions are also set to submit bids for players on their shortlist who are under contract at other clubs.
"I have got two meetings this morning with two players, and I'm waiting for two others to come back from holiday who I'm going to chat with," Holloway told the Southwark News.
"These players are available on free transfers because I'm allowed to meet with them.
"We are weighing up how those deals could affect some other options that we might be able to purchase, but it's all got to fit into my plan and where we're going.
"Age is very important in terms of how we're going to build the squad. It's quite exciting.
"It's vital that I meet with these players. I don't sign anybody willy-nilly – the only time I did that was with Stefan Maierhofer, but that was a calculated guess.
"It's well-documented that we had too many senior players last year so I've got to redress the balance to get some enthusiasm in the team."
One of the players Holloway is due to sit down with is former Yeovil Town defender Byron Webster, who we revealed last week is on Millwall's radar.
The Lions have back-up targets for each position they want to strengthen but Holloway is fully focused on landing the names at the top of his shortlist.
"Everybody I speak to has got to know that they are the one I want," he said.
"I won't let people down because I'm fully committed in every deal that I do. If I can't do the deal, they'll know that it is their choice, not mine and I'll give up and go somewhere else.
"I want players who could get better deals and bigger money elsewhere but want to come to Millwall and play my type of football. Those are the ones I'm looking for.
"Is it about skill or willpower? What's more important? You've got to want it.
"At any company, if you hire a new person he better be the right type of person otherwise he'll disrupt the whole office."
