Hooiveld signs for Millwall

The Dutchman saw little playing time while at Carrow Road and now will spend the rest of the season with another Championship club.

Dutchman Jos Hooiveld is on the move again, but he is staying at The Championship.

The 31-year old defender has signed for Millwall on a loan deal until the end of the season. Hooiveld spent the first half of the season with another Championship club, Norwich City.

However, he rarely features for The Canaries, making only six appearances due to a combination of injuries and the form of others ahead of him in the pecking order.

His last appearance for Norwich was back in November and though he was originally slated to spend the whole season at Carrow Road on loan from Southampton, the switch to Millwall should give him the playing time that he seek.

Hooiveld could make his debut later tonight against Reading. He is Millwall's sixth signing of this January transfer window as they hope to avoid relegation from Championship. Millwall currently occupies the last spot in the drop zone at 22nd.
