The 25-year-old has made 13 appearances since joining the Millers in the summer but has not featured since October.

Shots boss Dean Holdsworth told the club website:external-link "Lionel is a very exciting player who I know from my days as assistant manager of Derby County.

"He can play down the middle or on either flank, can be a real threat and possesses great quality."
