Nadjim 'Jimmy' Abdou joined Millwall in the summer of 2008 and has since gone on to join the '300 club' for The Lions.

After a particularly strong debut season, during which he scored four goals, including a crucial one against Leeds that sent Millwall to Wembley in May 2009, Jimmy has consolidated his position as a firm favourite amongst Lions fans.
 
During the course of 2010/11 he made his international debut for Comoros, but it was in 2011/12 that he was to have his best season to date, winning the Millwall Player of the Year award after being the model of combative consistency throughout a difficult nine months for his team.
 
Jimmy has been a regular in the starting Xl throughout his eight seasons at The Den and in 2014/15 he collected his second Player of the Year award since joining Millwall. 

The tireless midfielder was as consistent as ever during 2015/16, making 34 appearances for The Lions and scoring one goal in a 3-1 home win against Rochdale.
 
Abdou was made to battle with Shaun Williams and Ben Thompson in the centre of midfield during 2016/17, but played an important part in Millwall's Play-Off campaign, starring in the club's Wembley Stadium win over Bradford City.
