GRIMSBY have signed 30-year-old Millwall forward Adrian Forbes on loan until the end of the season, on transfer deadline day.

The 5'8" attacker, who has also played in midfield, is not a prolific goalscorer (1 goal in last 32 starts + 17 substitutions), but has played twice for the Lions in the current campaign. The Londoner also has league experience with Blackpool, Swansea, Luton and Norwich.

Forbes joins a long list on loanees at Blundell Park. most who have had some connection with Luton Town. Last week Grimsby Town manager Mike Newell managed to persuade Joe Widdowson and Dean Sinclair to extend their loan stays with the club.

West Ham United defender Widdowson will stay with the Mariners until the end of the season while Charlton midfielder Sinclair has agreed a one-month extension to his current agreement.

Newell is also hoping Doncaster Rovers will allow Stuart Elliot to remain at Blundell Park.

Midfielder Jean Paul Kalala completes the set of loan players at Blundell Park, who Oldham have lent Town until the end of the season.

  • Midfielder Peter Till has extended his loan at Chesterfield until the end of the season.
