MILLWALL are discussing a loan deal for Southampton centre back Jos Hooiveld.
Hooiveld is currently in the middle of a season-long stay at Norwich City but that could be cut-short to allow the former Dutch youth international to join the Lions instead.
The 31-year-old has featured just six times for the Canaries so far this term but they are funding a significant portion of his wages.
A possible solution is being negotiated between the three clubs.
One scenario could be that Norwich continue to pay a smaller percentage of Hooiveld's package and allow Millwall to pick up the rest of the tab.
That arrangement would see Ian Holloway gain a defender, Norwich make a saving and keep Hooiveld off of Southampton's wage bill until the summer.
The situation is likely to become clearer before the end of the week.
