PAUL Robinson is talking to Portsmouth about a permanent move to Fratton Park.
The long-serving Millwall centre back, who is currently on loan at Pompey, could now depart The Den in January.
Robinson has made 22 appearances for Portsmouth, who are 14th in League Two.
The 32-year-old's deal with the Lions expires in the summer, so he will be allowed to leave on a free transfer if Pompey make the right contract offer.
"There are two clubs involved, so I have been speaking to Millwall as well as speaking to Portsmouth," Robinson told the Portsmouth News.
"I need to reach an agreement with both sides for it to be something that works effectively for me. I am looking to stay here.
"I enjoy working and playing here and playing for the manager. It's a good group of lads and it feels like the club is very, very close to taking off.
"It would be lovely to be part of the group of lads that makes that happen. We've been discussing a loan extension and a permanent deal so we will see what happens.
"Millwall haven't said I'm free to go at the moment, so there are still plenty of discussions to be had. It only takes a couple of suspensions or injuries and it can all change.
"So we will just have to wait and see what materialises. I've really enjoyed my time here. It's a great club.
"These things always seem to drag out a little bit but hopefully something can get sorted."
