Halifax hot-shot Lee's a Lion

Millwall have beaten a host of clubs to clinch the signing of striker Lee Gregory on a three-year deal from FC Halifax Town for an undisclosed fee.

Frontman Lee, 25, is manager Ian Holloway's second signing of the summer after right-back Carlos Edwards penned a deal at The Den following a successful loan spell from Ipswich Town in the latter part of the 2013-14 campaign.

Boss Ollie said: "As a player Lee's movement and finishing reminds me of Neil Harris, and if he can enjoy anything like Chopper's success at Millwall, I'll be delighted.

"I think our fans will take to him and he'll score goals for us next season."

Born in Sheffield, Lee kicked off his playing career as a junior at Sheffield United, but found his way into the senior game via Staveley Miners Welfare, for whom he scored 37 goals in his only season.

His scoring exploits didn't go unnoticed and Lee was snapped up by Mansfield Town. However his chances with the Stags proved limited and it was when he moved to FC Halifax Town on a permanent basis in 2011 that his career took-off culminating in a prolific season last time out in which he bagged 31 goals in just 39 appearances.

A full interview with Millwall's latest signing will appear on Lions Player shortly.
