DAVID Forde believes it would be a major boost for Millwall if loan defender Mark Beevers completed a permanent move to South London.
The Lions are hoping to agree personal terms with Beevers on Tuesday after agreeing a fee with Sheffield Wednesday for the centre-back last week.
The Owls youth product has helped to shore up Millwall's backline since arriving at The Den in October and is unbeaten in his 11 appearances.
And Forde admitted: "It would be fantastic to keep him here. Beevs has been fantastic since he came to he club – he has fitted in like a hand in glove.
"Sometimes you go to clubs and you can just fit right in. Anyone that comes to Millwall on loan has always done exceptionally well because there is such a great bunch of lads here.
"The team spirit in the dressing room is massive, we are desperate to do well and the morale amongst everyone is really high."
