MICK McCARTHY will take his time before deciding whether to sign free agents Paul Green and Stephen Hunt for next season.

Green, on loan from Leeds, scored the winner as part of a man-of-the-match display against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday and was hailed afterwards by McCarthy, but he added that he wouldn't be rushing to sign him up.

"I thought 'Greeny' was outstanding," said McCarthy. "We're not going to sign him now, that's not going to be the case, but he has certainly given me a lot of food for thought."

Millwall 'keeper David Forde (34) is out of contract but has the security of knowing that the club are desperate to sign him up immediately.

Forde did give Millwall fans some positive indications that he will stay, however.

"I've been here for six years and played nearly 300 games, so the club means a lot to me. Of course I want to stay," he said.

There was bad news for three Irishmen over the weekend though, with Crawley Town boss John Gregory confirming that Corkman Billy Clarke, Dubliner Gary Dicker and Monaghan's Mark Connolly will not be retained for next season
