Millwall announce Elliott capture

Towering frontman signs on at The Den...

9 June 2017

Millwall are pleased to announce the signing of Tom Elliott on a two-year deal.

The 26-year-old, most recently with AFC Wimbledon, completed a medical at The Den on Friday afternoon before putting pen-to-paper. He will officially become a Millwall player on July 1st.

"Tom's a player I've admired for some time now," said Neil Harris. "We've had local allegiances with Wimbledon, so I've been able to watch him a few times.

"I'm really pleased to bring him in. He's a target man who has progressed really well under Neal Ardley over the last two years and has developed into a physical player with a good goalscoring record.

"Tom comes in and adds fight to the front line. We're putting a squad together that's giving us competition for places. It's a good day for the football club."

The 6'4" striker was on the scoresheet in January's 2-2 draw with The Dons - one of 13 goals that Elliott scored in the 2016/17 campaign.

The frontman, who has played for teams such as Leeds United, Stockport County and Cambridge United in his career, told how he couldn't wait to get started at The Den.

"I'm buzzing!" he said. "Since I met the manager, I've been excited to get going. I'm raring to go and I can't wait to start the season.

"The Championship is a step up - it's a bigger level - but I'm looking forward to testing myself.

"I spoke to Paul Robinson before signing on and he gave me a bigger picture of the club and some tips. The manager also showed his passion and his plans for the club when we spoke.

"That's why I'm here now - I'm so excited. I want to be a part of this club and I'm sure I can learn a lot from Neil, as a former striker himself."
