Jordan extends his stay at The Den

Jordan Archer has put pen-to-paper on a new long-term contract which secures his future with Millwall until the summer of 2019. 

The 23-year-old joined the club on a permanent basis from Tottenham Hotspur back in June 2015 and has made 56 appearances since becoming boss Neil Harris' number one choice in goal. He picked up Millwall's Player of the Year award last season and has continued his impressive form into the current campaign, helping The Lions to three victories from their opening five League matches so far in 2016/17.

"I'm delighted," Archer told millwallfc.co.uk. "I've always stated that I'm happy to stay at this great club.

"The fans have really taken to me and it's exciting to be part of the group of young players who are coming through. There is some experience in the squad too and we've got great coaches who I enjoy working with on a day-to-day basis.

"The manager has shown great faith in me since the day I signed so I have to thank him. Hopefully I can continue to repay the backing he has given me."

Harris added: "Jordan has been exceptional. He's still a young man but is very driven and has a big future in front of him at this football club. 

"It was imperative that we tied Jordan down to a longer contract. Since he came into the team he has really put his stamp down on the goalkeeper position having had to fight tooth and nail with David Forde for the number one shirt.

"I'm delighted to have secured his signature, which is a sign of the club's ambition because he has been attracting interest from elsewhere. Credit must go to the chairman for doing all he can to keep this group of young, talented players together in order to help the team continue its development under my stewardship."
