Tom King "over the moon" following contract extension

26 January 2017

Millwall goalkeeper to stay at The Den until 2018

Rising goalkeeper Tom King says the decision to extend his contract was an easy one because his mentors at Millwall are "some of the best in the business."

King spent the majority of 2015/16 on loan at non-league Welling United and Braintree Town, but made his competitive debut for The Lions in their EFL Cup defeat against Nottingham Forest this past August.

The 21-year-old made has since made four first-team appearances and credits goalkeeping coach Kevin Pressman for the rise.

"It's been amazing for me," King told "Kevin had such a long and established career and he's passed on a lot of that knowledge.

"I grew up watching him on tv, playing for Sheffield Wednesday. You never think you will grow up to meet these people, let alone work along side them."

The Millwall goalkeeper has put pen to paper on a deal that will cover the 2017/18 campaign, as well as the remainder of the current season.

"I am over the moon to extend my contract because it shows Neil has me in his plans. I can now really concentrate on my football and do what I can to help the team get promotion towards the end of the season."
