Millwall confirm James Meredith signing

Left-back joins from Bradford City...

9 June 2017

Millwall Football Club is delighted to confirm the signing of James Meredith on a two-year deal.

Meredith, 29, joins The Lions from Bradford City and the Australian international spoke to of his "excitement" at getting started at The Den.

"I'm pleased to join. I'm excited to get going here. I'm keeping myself fit over the summer break and I'm looking forward to getting started in The Championship."

The left-back shunned offers from elsewhere to join the club and cited manager Neil Harris as the main reason behind his arrival in south London.

"The gaffer persuaded me, really," said Meredith. "We sat down after the Play-Off Final and talked over a few things, including his plans for next season. He showed me the players that are currently at the club and showed me some clips of the style of play and how I could fit into that."

"I'm excited about coming down to London and getting started."

Harris, meanwhile, stated his pleasure at the capture of the Australian.

"It's a brilliant one. It's been well publicised that James was coming to us, but it's great to get it over the line. The medical has been completed and the paperwork has been signed. We're really pleased to welcome him aboard.

"He's been a consistent performer in League One over the last couple of years. Our fans would've seen an outstanding display from him in the Play-Off Final at Wembley a couple of weeks ago.

"He's going to add real competition to the squad. Tony (Craig) has been fantastic, Joe (Martin) was fantastic, but with the latter leaving, we need new competition in the left-back slot. James brings that. He carries the ball well up the park and gives us a different dimension."
