MILLWALL are hopeful of extending Andy Wilkinson's loan deal until the end of the season.
The Lions are talking to Stoke City, Wilkinson’s parent club, about keeping the right back beyond January.
The 30-year-old said earlier this month that he would be open to staying in south London and Holloway is confident of wrapping up talks before the transfer window opens.
Millwall have lost only two of the six games Wilkinson has played in since he moved to The Den in mid-October and he looks set to make the right-back berth his own in the New Year.
Holloway is also ready to begin discussing the possibility of Wilkinson joining the Lions permanently, with his deal at the Britania Stadium due to expire in June.
"We're working on extending the loan right now," Holloway told the Southwark News.
"I think Andy wants to stay so that would be fantastic. He's enjoying himself here.
"Hopefully we'll get him until the end of the season and he's out-of-contract in the summer as well. He has settled us down."
Meanwhile, Holloway says he is working tirelessly to beef up his scouting network ahead of the January window.
"Mick Harford is our only scout at the moment so we've got to expand that department – I know that and the board knows that," he said.
"In the meantime, I've got to get on the blower, get us a list of names and get us looking in different areas of the world. We need to identify our market.
"We need a steady conveyor belt of new players coming in. I need to find some new players to give us more options and the ammunition that we need."
