Millwall have taken Justin Hoyte on a trial basis for training ahead of a potential move for him.

The official site is very vague about any details as you’d expect, but the 28 year old right back has been given permission by Middlesbrough to join us for training this week and it’s believed it is so Steve Lomas can assess him ahead of a potential emergency loan move.

The player has only made three appearances so far this season for his parent club, and two of those league appearances were from the bench, and Middlesbrough have previously indicated that they would be willing to listen to offers for the player as they believe they have plenty of options at the back now.

No agreement has yet been reached and it depends on how he does in training you would suspect ultimately, but he does have plenty of experience, having made 174 league starts since coming through Arsenal’s Academy, spending time on loan at Sunderland and then signing permanently for Boro in 2008 – where he went onto make almost 165 appearances in all competitions for them.

His contract with Boro expires at the end of the season so Hoyte will be wanting regular football to put him back into the shop window.

In other loan news, striker John Marquis has decided to remain at Portsmouth and fight for his place there despite manager Guy Whittingham admitting that with players returning from injury earlier than expected, Marquis’ chances would now be limited.
