Millwall sign George Saville on long-term contract

Midfielder re-joins The Lions...

2 July 2021

Millwall Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of George Saville from Middlesbrough.

The 28-year-old midfielder returns to SE16 for an undisclosed fee, penning a long-term contract.

Saville's career began at Stamford Bridge in the Chelsea youth set-up, before a loan move to The Lions handed him his first professional start in 2013, where he appeared three times.

Loan moves to Brentford and Bristol City followed, as did a three-year spell at Wolverhampton Wanderers, which included a temporary move back to The Den - one which was followed by a permanent move in the summer of 2017.

In The Lions' first season back at Sky Bet Championship level after winning the League One Play-Offs, Saville hit the back of the net 10 times in a campaign which saw the midfielder play 50 times, earning international recognition with Northern Ireland in the process.

A multi-million pound move to Middlesbrough arose in August 2018, but after three years away, Saville now returns to The Den as Gary Rowett's fifth summer signing.

Stay tuned to for all the reaction from Saville and Rowett.
