Middlesbrough striker Rudy Gestede has rejected a loan move to Millwall.
The 30-year-old has struggled to establish himself at the Riverside Stadium since signing on a £6m deal from Aston Villa in January 2016.
He has only scored four goals in 40 Championship games and has made just seven appearances this season.
His last league game was the 1-1 draw against Preston on November 27.
Millwall are light on strikers having lost Tom Elliott and Tom Bradshaw to long-term injuries and boss Neil Harris was attracted by Gestede's presence in the air.
But the 6ft 3ins forward has turned the opportunity to move to Millwall, who are just five points above the bottom three in the Championship.
It is understood Gestede had already turned down a loan move to Ipswich, who are five points adrift at the bottom of the table.
