Ollie lands first target

Talisman Carlos becomes a Lion

Ian Holloway has made the first addition to his squad for the 2014/15 season and while his new acquisition is hardly a surprise it is likely to be a popular one.

Carlos Edwards made his Lions debut on loan from Ipswich Town in the 2-2 draw against Blackburn Rovers on 29th March as Millwall embarked on a remarkable eight match unbeaten run to the end of the campaign which saw them beat the drop by three points, having seemingly been dead and buried the day Carlos signed for the club.

The right back also netted the all-important winner at Wigan on 8th April, a result that lifted Ollie's men out of the bottom three.

He said: "I didn't even think about the League position to be honest. I was just really keen to go to Millwall and play, and it soon became clear to me that we had enough in the dressing room to go on a run and get the results we needed.

For me it was really exciting because we were playing good football and getting wins and draws every game, so I was enjoying myself. To stay up was great and now I'm delighted to be joining the club on a permanent basis and really looking forward to next season."

Look out for an exclusive Lions Player interview with Carlos, who has signed a one year deal at The Den from 26th June, on Thursday this week. He has asked to retain the number 44 shirt, saying: "This is the number I wore for 'the great escape' so I want to keep it."
