21 June 2016

Defender to become second summer signing

Millwall Football Club is delighted to announce that it has agreed terms with Shaun Hutchinson, who will join The Lions on 1st July following the expiration of his contract with Fulham.

The defender is set to sign a two-year deal with the option of an additional 12 months to become Millwall's second signing of the summer after the arrival of David Worrall.

Hutchinson began his career with Scottish club Motherwell, making his debut in 2009, and featured a further 140 times before moving to Craven Cottage in 2014. The 25-year-old made 31 appearances in his first campaign with the West London club as well as 11 last season.

Speaking to millwallfc.co.uk, he said: "I'm really happy to be here. I met up with Neil (Harris) last week and he really sold the club to me. The manager has been working very hard to get me in and that is a nice thing to know. Coming to work at a place where you are so wanted is a great feeling.

"I can't wait to get going and am looking forward to putting on the Millwall shirt."

Neil Harris added: "Shaun is a player that as a club we have been aware of for quite a period of time. We tracked him diligently when he was at Motherwell and when he was moving down south we bid for him.

"We monitored him last season knowing that he was coming out of contract. He is a no-nonsense defender who likes to head it in both boxes and is very aggressive in his approach. Shaun adds competition to a very solid backline.

"He is a real winner with a lot to prove."
