Millwall's under-23s captain James Brown has today left the club on loan, to join Lincoln City until the end of the season.
With a loan move to Livingstone in August failing to work out after the departure of their manager, Brown - who made 34 appearances on loan at Carlisle last season [in all competitions] - will link up with Danny Cowley's Imps for the remainder of the 2018/19 season after providing cover on the bench for the injured Conor McLaughlin in a number of recent Lions games.
The 21 year old, born in Dover, is a player that Neil Harris seemingly rates highly - though with first team chances hard to come by in the Championship, Brown decided to depart temporarily as Lincoln chase promotion to the third tier.
His new side are currently three points clear at the top of the table, with two games in hand on closest rivals Bury.
He will wear the #20 shirt at Sincil Bank.
Brown told redimps.co.uk: "You won't find a bigger club in League Two in terms of fan base, so that makes this move an attractive one from the off, for me,
"The gaffer is the one who got me here through phone calls, he seems really enthusiastic and there is a good vibe around the place.
"He knows I need to continue to play football, and I have done for the last season and a half so for my development it was important to come here in an environment where we want to go up and get promoted.
"I have really enjoyed it, I came up on Sunday and have been training for the last couple of days,
"It is about bedding in and that process but it has been going great and the management staff are great, there is a good bunch here so I am looking forward to it.
"In terms of style of play I am more of an old fashioned full-back. It is quite rare I guess now days, that is what I pride myself on, defending. I know what League Two is about because I have played in it, if I have to do the ugly side of it I will,
"You know what a career they have had and how good players they are. We can all drive each other forward in competition for place. Someone with that career and that caliber in this league, you can only benefit from it." [On the former Premier League talent amongst the Imps' backline].
