Ian Holloway has been reunited with one of his former charges following the arrival of 28-year-old midfielder Angel Martinez (known as Angel), on a one year deal.

Angel made 73 appearances for Blackpool before electing to leave the Seasiders when his contract ran out in the summer. Since then he has been training with another of his former clubs, Girona, in Spain whilst weighing up his options for his next move.

As a free agent, he has been able to sign for The Lions after the transfer window closed on Monday.

A product of the Espanyol youth system, the former Spain U19 and U21 international played some 50 games in La Liga for the Barcelona based club before joining Rayo Vallecano on loan.

Talking about his arrival at Millwall, Angel said: "I have stayed in touch with Ian Holloway since he left Blackpool, and for me he is a special manager.

We had a great season there when we reached the Championship Play-Off Final at Wembley, and I hope we can have success here too."

An exclusive full interview with Angel can be viewed on Lions Player.
