IAN Holloway believes Mathias Ranegie will make a big impact at Millwall.
The Lions manager has tried and failed to sign Ranegie before so admits he is relieved to have finally got his man.
Ranegie, signed from Watford on loan until January, made his debut as a second-half substitute against Blackpool at the weekend.
Holloway said: "I'm very pleased to have him.
"Mathias only came in on Friday but it was nice to take Ricardo Fuller off and put somebody on who's built like him, because we need that sort of thing.
"I have had him on my radar for quite a while but I haven't previously been able to afford him. Now I've managed to get him.
"I nearly bought him before but it didn't come off. I'm pleased that he's wanted to come to us."
Asked whether Millwall are likely to make Ranegie's move permanent, Holloway added: "It's a loan until January but we can extend that if he likes us.
"I don't think Udinese sell their players unless it's for millions of pounds. He actually belongs to them, doesn't he?
"Udinese nicked him when I was trying to buy him because their scouting network is very good – completely unbelievable really.
"He's exactly what we need and a very, very talented striker."
