Evans looking to "kick on" at Millwall

Hear from the new man...

1 February 2021

George Evans is "excited" to join Millwall - and credited a trio of current Lions in helping him to make his decision.

The 26-year-old joined the club from Derby County for an undisclosed fee on Monday morning and put pen-to-paper on a long-term deal.

Able to operate in either defence or midfield, the 26-year-old has become Gary Rowett's second permanent signing of the January transfer window - and he told of his hopes to "kick on" with The Lions.

"I'm really excited to be here," he said. "It's a great opportunity for me to kick on and I'm looking forward to starting.

"It's a great club and somewhere I want to be in terms of playing. I hope I can come here, play some good games and get us up the table where we deserve to be.

"I've played in midfield and in defence, as a three and as a two. I like to think that I can fill in a number of positions, and that will hopefully mean more minutes on the pitch for me. Wherever I need to play, I'm happy to do so."

Having previously played for Derby County and Reading - amongst other clubs - Evans explained how Scott Malone, Mason Bennett and Jake Cooper were all factors in his decision to sign.

"They all spoke highly of the place - the manager, the staff and the people here. After speaking to them, they eased my mind a bit and it was an easy option to come."
