Webster deal done

24 June 2014

Byron signs two-year deal

Millwall have agreed a deal to sign defender Byron Webster on a two-year contract that starts on 1st July.

The 27-year-old moves to The Den after his contract with Yeovil Town, who were relegated to League One at the end of the 2013/14 season, came to an end.

Born in Yorkshire, the central defender's career began at York City in 2004, and after three years he joined Czech side FK Banik Most, where the towering defender played for two seasons.

Webster impressed in a trial for Doncaster Rovers in 2009, who soon signed him, but after successful loan spells at Hereford in 2010 and Northampton in 2011, he agreed a permanent switch to Sixfields in 2011.

There, Webster first played under Gary Johnson, who brought him to Yeovil a year later, and the centre-half was a mainstay of the backline which helped secure The Glovers’ promotion to the Championship via the League One Play-Offs at the end of the 2012/13 campaign.

The 6'5" centre-half made 45 appearances for Yeovil in their first-ever season in the second tier of English football, scoring four goals.

Byron becomes Millwall manager Ian Holloway's third signing of the summer so far after Carlos Edwards and Lee Gregory arrived at The Den."
