Tim Cahill signed for Millwall on a short-term deal on 29th January 2018.

After starting his career in SE16 and following spells at Everton, New York Red Bulls, Shanghai Shenhua and Melbourne City, the midfielder-turned-forward has returned to where it all begun for the remainder of the 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship campaign.

Cahill made his Lions debut on 2nd May 1998 in a 2-1 home defeat by AFC Bournemouth, but went on to star in a number of the club's greatest moments before his departure to Goodison Park in 2004.

In amongst the 38-year-old's 250 appearances came Cahill's biggest domestic achievements in a Millwall shirt - being an integral part of the 2000/01 Second Division title-winning team, as well as being the key man in the club's never-to-be-forgotten FA Cup Semi-Final victory over Sunderland at Old Trafford.

His rise to stardom earned him a £1.5m move to Everton in the summer of 2004, where Cahill went on to further enhance his reputation, scoring 68 goals in around 250 games for The Blues.

The boom of the MLS attracted the Australian international in 2012, with a move to New York Red Bulls facilitated, before Tim moved further afield three years later, signing for Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua.

In August 2016, Cahill returned to his homeland by joining Melbourne City, but with first-team opportunities limited, Millwall boss Neil Harris swooped to bring the forward back to The Den in January 2018.
