'Chuffed to bits'

8 August 2013

Derry delighted to be a Lion

Shaun Derry said he is 'chuffed to bits' to have today joined Millwall on a one-month loan from Championship rivals QPR.

Midfield lynchpin Shaun put pen to paper this afternoon and is expected to go straight into The Lions squad for Saturday's game at Ipswich Town. He has been handed squad number 17.

Explaining how the move came about Shaun enthused: "Steve Lomas contacted QPR and I had a chat with Harry (Redknapp) after the game on Tuesday and we both decided it was perhaps best for me to get some games.

I was well up for it. I am absolutely chuffed to bits to be at Millwall.

I'm here first and foremost to play football and to help the club get further up the league than they were last year. Also, the locality of it is great for me because I live just around the corner and the passion of the place and the supporters is fantastic.

My wife's family are all Millwall fans so they are delighted and so am I."
