Millwall's on-loan striker Tresor Kandol is hoping he will be allowed to remain with the League One outfit.

Kandol's registration remains in the hands of Leeds, with the Whites' boss Gary McAllister hinting this week that he may recall the 27-year-old to help solve the goalscoring shortage at Elland Road.

The former Barnet man admits he would not be averse to a return to Yorkshire but, having scored eight goals in 13 starts for the Lions, concedes that a prolonged stay in the capital would be his preferred option.


"I've got no issues with anybody, I just want to play football and that is all I want," he told skysports.com.

"That is the only thing any footballer wants to do, enjoy their football week in week out and that is what is happening for me here. I've enjoyed my time at Millwall and I'm playing regularly.

"Obviously Leeds are still my club and I have a contract with them for another two and a half years, so if I had to go back I'd just keep my head down and try to break into the side there instead.

"If Leeds are going to offer me the chance to play football regularly and enjoy my football there then I'll have no qualms in going back there. I don't want to go back there just to sit on the bench, just like any other footballer."


The Lions are currently well-placed for an automatic promotion spot in League One, sitting just behind two points behind leaders Leicester, and Kandol is thrilled by their reversal in form following last season's relegation struggle.

"Last season when I came here the team were fighting to avoid relegation, whereas now we are second in the league, so you can't ask for more than that," he added.

"There's a massive difference from the struggle of last season and the gaffer has done wonders."
