George Saville returned to Millwall Football Club for an undisclosed fee on a long-term contract in July 2021.

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.
