MARTYN Woolford could leave Millwall to join Leeds United before the transfer window closes on Monday night.
Woolford has been left out of the Lions' last two squads and Ian Holloway revealed after Saturday's win at Nottingham Forest that the winger could now depart.
But Woolford's potential move to Elland Road is by no means a done deal, with Holloway prepared to bring the 29-year-old "back into the fold" if it falls through.
Millwall may need Woolford to stick around after Lee Martin was taken to hospital with a rib injury he sustained during a heavy fall against Forest.
"I'm not sure what's going to happen with Martyn," said Holloway. "Leeds' manager wants him but I'm not sure [if he can sign him].
"I've had to be open with Martyn and say 'this might be a possibility' because he's out-of-contract and they'll pay him more than I will, eventually.
"He's a Yorkshire lad as well.
"But if that doesn't happen, he knows I will bring him back into the fold – that's not an issue. I have to be open and honest with him.
"I would've wanted to give Martyn a new contract but I'm not sure I can afford that. The ones I've moved out the way are my higher earners so that I can do other things.
"But if Martyn and Leeds doesn't happen he might well get a place in my team, particularly if Lee has now gone and done something.”
Holloway is hoping to strengthen his squad before the 11pm deadline on Monday but also has the option of bringing in fresh faces during the loan window.
"I'm looking to add if I can," he said. "I've got a couple of things but whether or not they'll come off, I don't know.
"But there's also loans after that.
"It's only the Premier League boys who can't sign players after Monday. We can cheat the system with 93-day emergency loans."
