Marshall "can't wait to get started" at Millwall

The winger speaks following his arrival...

31 January 2018

Ben Marshall stated Millwall was "a perfect fit" after signing for the club on loan until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old put pen-to-paper on a loan deal on Wednesday morning and told that he is willing to do whatever manager Neil Harris asks of him between now and May.

"I'm really pleased to put pen-to-paper. It's been a long time since I played and I wanted to come and get some games. Millwall was a perfect fit," he said.

"The philosophy here is to work hard and the manager has had a good chat with me. It's good to hear and I can't wait to get started.

"It's been a bit difficult watching on the sidelines, but that's football. Wolves have brought some really good players in and the lads are doing fantastic - sometimes you've just got to hold your hands up.

"I've been keeping myself ticking. I've not played and training wise at Wolves I've just been running, but I've spoken to the manager and discussed that I need a bit of fitness work and a few minutes, but hopefully it shouldn't take too long for me to get going."

Having spent three-and-a-half years at Blackburn before joining Wolves, Marshall has spent his career proving his versatility across the pitch.

"I've played all over, really. My strengths are crossing the ball, assists and scoring goals. Position-wise, I play on the left or right, have played at right-back or in a number 10 role; whatever the manager wants me to do, I'll do it.

"If I'm able to play on the wing I'll be getting crosses in for the big men. Hopefully I can do that and get a few goals and assists of my own."
