Jermaine Easter is set to sign a one-year contract with Millwall this week.
The Welsh international striker spent a spell on loan at The Den from Crystal Palace during the back end of the season.
He scored one goal in nine appearances for the Lions under former boss Kenny Jackett, who resigned at the end of the campaign.
But despite Jackett’s departure, Easter is now set to make the move permanent – and he is already targeting emulating Palace, by breaking into the play-off places next season.
Easter, 31, said: “The circumstances are slightly strange I suppose that Kenny (Jackett) has left the club now, but when I was on loan myself and Kenny agreed everything and I was expecting to be playing for him next season.
“However I've been in the game long enough to know how football works, so will now be looking to do well under the new manager.
“Kenny Jackett did a fantastic job for Millwall and the new manager will undoubtedly put his own stamp on the team, bring in a few new players and try to move the club on.
“These are exciting times and hopefully the coming season will see us challenging for the play-offs.”
