Ipswich Town manager Jim Magilton insists striker Danny Haynes still has a future at the club, despite his loan switch to Millwall.
Haynes has moved to The Den on an initial one-month deal and links up with former Ipswich assistant Willie Donachie at the League One club.
Magilton is confident the loan move for the 18-year-old will be benefit his career, which the Tractor Boys boss insists is still very much at Portman Road.
"Danny is a south London boy - he comes from just round the corner from The Den - and he jumped at the opportunity," Magilton said.
"This move will suit everyone. Playing competitive games will be good for Danny and will keep him fresh and lively.
"After our game at Colchester on Friday we have a two-week break but Danny will keep playing and that will be good for his fitness.
"I have told him he is still very much a part of our plans here and he should look at this as part of his football education.
"He has an affinity for Millwall, since he comes from that area, and I would love to see him banging in a few goals while he is with them."
Meanwhile, Magilton has made four players available for loan in order to give them regular first-team football.
Defenders Scott Barron and Chris Casement and midfielders Sammy Moore and Jaime Peters are all being allowed to leave Ipswich on short-term deals.
"There could well be some movement in the next week or so," Magilton confirmed.
"I would have no problem sending any of these lads out on loan so that they can play on a regular basis."
