MILLWALL will offer fans' favourite Jimmy Abdou a new contract.
Abdou, who has made 270 appearances for the Lions during almost seven years at the club, was due to become a free agent in the summer.
But it is understood that talks will take place in the coming weeks with a view to keeping him at The Den beyond the end of his current contract.
Manager Ian Holloway has already spoken to Abdou about extending his deal and chief executive Andy Ambler has made contact with the midfielder's agent.
Negotiations are not expected to last long, with the popular 30-year-old eager to prolong his career in SE16 having forced his way back into the side in recent weeks.
Abdou, who said recently that he could see out his playing days at Millwall, produced arguably his best performance of the season during last weekend's 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest.
Meanwhile, centre back Jos Hooiveld has stressed the importance of the Lions' mindset ahead of Saturday's clash with Huddersfield Town.
Millwall, who then travel to Birmingham and Leeds next week, will move to within four points of the 17th-placed Terriers with a win.
"This game is not more or less important than any other," Hooiveld said.
"I remember when we were fighting relegation at Southampton and our next game was QPR. People kept saying that, after that game, we had some difficult fixtures.
"But we lost to QPR and we won against Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool – so which one was the most difficult?
"Every game is worth three points and if our mindset is right, there is a good possibility we can give everybody a good run for their money."
