MILLWALL hope to wrap up the loan signing of Nottingham Forest defender Dan Harding in the next 48 hours.
Harding has been lined up as a replacement for Scott Malone, who is currently discussing a £100,000-transfer to Championship rivals Cardiff City.
Ian Holloway confirmed after Saturday's 3-3 draw with Bradford City that he expected to add a new left back to his squad on Monday morning.
Harding, who can count Brighton, Ipswich and Southampton among his former employers, has made ten appearances for Forest this season.
But the 31-year-old is behind Danny Fox in the pecking order at the City Ground and he is ready to go out on loan in order to secure regular first-team football.
The Lions will want to conclude talks as soon as possible with Stuart Pearce's job reportedly under threat at Forest, where a change of manager could put a halt on all transfers.
