Cahill set for Millwall reunion before Derby clash

TIM Cahill is set for a reunion with Millwall fans at The Den – before the Lions' Championship clash with Derby County on Tuesday night. 

Millwall are set to officially announce the Lions cult hero's return to the club after a deal until the end of the season was agreed on Monday.

The deal to bring Cahill back to the club where he started his professional career more than 20 years ago was not completed in time to allow him to feature against the Rams. But he will be introduced – or reintroduced – to the crowd before kick-off.

Cahill, 38, hasn't played competitively since December 2 and is likely to be given game time with the club's under-23s as he builds up his match fitness.

Cahill will become Neil Harris' third signing this transfer window, after Harry Toffolo completed his move from Norwich City on Monday morning and Jason Shackell signed on loan from Derby last week.
