STEVE Lomas has held talks with ex-Middlesbrough and Charlton midfielder Nicky Bailey about a possible move to Millwall, NewsAtDen understands.

Bailey was released by Boro at the end of last season and Lomas has since expressed a keen interest in making the 28-year-old his first signing as Lions boss.

On Thursday, Bailey’s wife wrote on Twitter that she was “London bound…crossing the T’s dotting the I’s.” However, she later said: “Someone put a spanner in the works! Another 3 clubs to go! This weekend gonna be crazy then decision time for us. Who it going to be?”

Born in Putney, Bailey began his career at Sutton United before moving onto Barnet and then Southend United. He scored four goals in 98 appearances during three seasons at Middlesbrough after leaving the Addicks for £1.4million.
