Millwall have boosted their backline with the loan signing of Liverpool centre back Zak Whitbread.

The American-born youngster initially joins The Lions until January 3 - with a view to extending the deal for the rest of the season.

The 21-year-old has made just three appearances for The Reds this term, which included the Carling Cup defeat to Crystal Palace.

Whitbread, who can also play at left back, will welcome the chance to earn regular first-team football with Colin Lee's side, as the South East London club look to add new faces before Thursday's Football League loan deadline.
