Easter set to sign

Jermaine commits to Lions

Jermaine Easter will put pen to paper on a one-year contract this weekend, concluding a deal that was initiated by former manager Kenny Jackett.
The Welsh international striker, 31, was on loan from Crystal Palace last season in which he scored one goal in nine appearances for The Lions. He will complete his move once formalities are completed.
And Jermaine is already looking forward to the new campaign, saying: "The circumstances are slightly strange I suppose that Kenny (Jackett) has left the club now, but when I was on loan myself and Kenny agreed everything and I was expecting to be playing for him next season.
However I've been in the game long enough to know how football works, so will now be looking to do well under the new manager.
There were some highs and lows in my time at Millwall last season, obviously scoring on my debut at Charlton was great but after the FA Cup Semi-Final the form wasn't great and going into the last game of the season needing to get something or for other results to go our way. Next year we want to enjoy our football a bit more and be pushing up the table, not be involved at the bottom.
I think a major factor was the injuries we suffered in midfield; Richard Chaplow showed what he could do before he got injured and Liam Trotter was out for a spell too. From an attacking point of view, as a striker, if you lose central midfielders who are also going to create and score goals for you, it does make it that bit harder.
Now, however, I'm looking forward to the new season and playing under whoever the new manager is.
Kenny Jackett did a fantastic job for Millwall and the new manager will undoubtedly put his own stamp on the team, bring in a few new players and try to move the club on.
These are exciting times and hopefully the coming season will see us challenging for the Play-Offs."
Meanwhile, winger Chris Taylor is set to join Blackburn Rovers on a two-year deal. The winger decided against signing a new contract at The Den and will instead officially become a Rovers player on July 1st.
