Millwall legend Tim Cahill could make a return to the club in a loan deal, reports News At Den.
The South Bermondsey club hope to convince the midfielder to make a return to the club he started his career at.
It all depends on his current club, New York Red Bulls, making him available for loan.
The Australian is tipped to make a short-term return to England when the MLS season finishes in December.
Millwall have confirmed they have put their name into the hat but they face stiff competition from Premier League sides QPR and Sunderland.
The 34-year-old scored 52 goals in 217 appearances for the Lions in six years with the club before leaving to join Everton for £1.5 million.
The Millwall hierarchy have warned fans it is a long shot but they hope Cahill’s affection for the club will see him snub a move to the Premier League for one last stint in the Lions shirt.
Milwall’s chief executive Andy Ambler told the Southwark News: “We’d love to talk to Tim about that.
“We would love to talk to Tim and his representatives but we recognise there will be huge interest in him.
“I saw that night how much Millwall means to Tim (Australia played Ecuador at the New Den in March). It was clear he has the Millwall bug.
“We realise he is over in America for now and that he will probably be looking to go to the Premier League if he does come back to England on loan.
“But if Tim’s reading this, hopefully he will give his mate Neil Harris a call!”.
