Millwall seal permanent deal for Ferguson

26 January 2016

Shane signs contract until the summer of 2017

Millwall Football Club is delighted to confirm the signing of Shane Ferguson from Newcastle United for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old, who made 28 appearances for The Lions during a loan spell this season, has signed a contract until the summer of 2017.

Ferguson came through Newcastle's youth ranks, going on to feature 32 times for The Magpies, and also enjoyed loan spells with Birmingham City and Rangers prior to his arrival at The Den back in August.

The Northern Ireland international has played a key part in Millwall's season so far and is delighted to have secured his future with the club.

"It's a relief to get the deal done," Ferguson told

"I've been keen to get everything sorted and I'm now really looking forward to my future with Millwall.

"I've loved every second of my time here so it was a no-brainer to sign on a permanent basis.

"My task now is to help Millwall get back where we belong, which hopefully can be done this season."

Neil Harris added: "Shane has displayed his ability in two different positions for us since he joined on loan, so naturally I'm delighted that he is now with us on a permanent basis.

"He has shown a real desire to stay here and is of an age where he needs to be playing football regularly for the sake of his own development, and we have given him that opportunity.

"I believe that it is a fantastic piece of business and I would like to thank the board for given me the opportunity to buy a player of Shane's quality and age."
