Reds boss Richie Barker told the club website:external-link "He is very highly regarded at Millwall and he will get opportunities.

"He is a hard-working striker who is a very good finisher and I'm sure when he gets his opportunity he will do well."

He added: "The reports from our scouts and [director of football] Steve Coppell on Aiden were very positive and their manager Kenny Jackett believes he now needs to go out and play League football.
