Republic of Ireland

Experienced centre-half Alex Pearce arrived at The Den in January 2019, on a loan deal from Derby County.

The Republic of Ireland defender became Neil Harris' first recruit of 2019, and carries plenty of Championship experience having won the division with Reading in 2011/12.

Alex has played Premier League football for The Royals, and has earned nine caps for his country - scoring two goals.

The centre-back has also picked up experience for clubs such as Southampton and Bristol City, and his short time thus far with Millwall saw him become first-choice alongside Jake Cooper in Harris' defensive line in the second half of 2018/19.

Alex's great impression on the squad and leadership qualities have enabled him to take the captain's armband on several occasions, and it is now confirmed that the Irishman will sign a permanent deal at The Den starting in July this year.
