Easter departs

8 January 2015

Welsh international striker leaves The Den

Striker Jermaine Easter has become the third Millwall player whose contract has been cancelled during the January transfer window leaving him free to find another club.

The 32-year-old Welsh international initially joined The Lions on loan in September 2008 and his debut was a dramatic one with a goal and a red card at Swindon.

He returned for another loan spell in March 2013, and again scored in his first game, helping Kenny Jackett's men to a vital win at Charlton.

The move became permanent in the summer of that year, and Jermaine went on to make a total of 46 senior appearances for the club, many of them from the sub's bench, scoring six goals.

He said: "I would like to wish everyone at Millwall the very best for the remainder of the season and hopefully they can retain their Championship status.

The manager is trying to bring new faces in to help achieve that goal, so I fully understand the situation. I would like to thank him, the staff, players and the fans who have been very good to me throughout my time at The Den.

I have some fond memories, particularly of my 'second debut' goal at Charlton, the late equaliser against QPR, the one I scored against Wigan and even my final goal for the club at Norwich in spite of the result, because it was my 100th senior goal."

Easter becomes the fourth departure in 2015 so far, following Josh Wright, Paul Robinson and Scott Malone in search of pastures new. Paris Cowan-Hall and Dan Harding have come into the club since January 3rd and the manager his hopeful of making further additions in the coming weeks.
