Millwall sign young defender Rooney

Lions add to their U21 squad

Millwall Football Club is delighted to confirm the signing of youngster Paul Rooney.

The 19-year-old centre-half, most recently with Bohemians, will link up with Justin Skinner's Elite Development Squad.

Discussing the arrival of the Irish defender, Neil Harris told millwallfc.co.uk: "Paul came in for a few days last year to show us his talent. He's been playing in the League of Ireland as a young man in a men's division so physically he can compete. 

"Paul is at a good age and will come initially to work with Justin in the U21s with the hope that in the long run he can develop into a first team player.

"But I'm not putting any pressure on him. He needs to come in, find his feet and enjoy himself. Fingers crossed it works out."
