Lions defender Sid Nelson, who signed a one year contract to extend his stay at The Den last summer, has joined Tranmere Rovers on loan until the end of the season.
Like all of Millwall's outgoing loanees, Nelson was recalled at the start of January to be assessed by the management team - having impressed in the first half of the season at Swindon Town, where he made 23 appearances in all competitions.
Robins' boss Richie Wellens had wanted to make that move permanent, but Nelson - who has made 38 appearances for Millwall - will link up with Micky Mellon's side now. Tranmere currently sit 10th in the fourth tier, just five points behind the play-off places.
Upon joining his new club, Nelson spoke to Tranmere's official website. He said: “I am glad I am joining a Club that is looking forward and I now want to help the team push on.
“I found out about Tranmere’s interest a few days ago now and obviously I felt good about hearing that as Tranmere are a huge Club with a great fan base.
“It is a team going in the right direction, so when I found out about the move, I was delighted, and I am happy the deal has gone through.
“As a player you want to compete in front of as many people as possible and Tranmere is a huge football club with a lot of history and I can’t wait to get going.
“I have played in League Two already this season with Swindon Town, so I know what the division is all about. I know what this division is all about and I am focused on helping Tranmere Rovers move forward.”
