Nathan Tyson: Set to join Millwall on loan from Derby
Millwall are set to sign Derby County striker Nathan Tyson on loan until the end of the season.
The Lions revealed on their club website that the striker will complete the deal on Thursday morning and will wear the number 10 shirt.
Tyson has found his first-team opportunities at Pride Park limited this season, making five starts and a further 12 outings from the bench.
The 30-year-old forward held talks with Rams boss Nigel Clough earlier in the week and during that time he requested the opportunity to go out on loan, in order to play first-team football on a regular basis.
Clough said: "At Nathan's age, he doesn't want to be sitting on the bench week after week and we understand that.
"We have Jamie Ward, Conor Sammon, Theo Robinson, Michael Jacobs and Mason Bennett all vying for a spot in attack, so Nathan would've continued to have limited chances to start so we feel this is a good chance for him to go and play regularly for the rest of the season."
