Winger Shane Ferguson has committed his long-term future to Millwall after signing a new contract with the Championship outfit.
The 27-year-old, who has made 134 appearances and scored 12 goals since signing for the club back in August 2015, told the Millwall official website of his delight at finally penning a new deal with the club.
“I’m really happy, I feel it has been a great season for me,” said the former Newcastle United player, “I’m happy firstly to be playing games.
“I spoke to the manager in pre-season and he told me that if I work hard and keep my head down, I’d get a chance in this team.
“Thankfully the chance came to be out there playing, and I’m delighted to sign a new deal.
“I’ve been here four years now,” he added, “and the fans have welcomed me in – it’s great to be playing here at The Den, and now I’m just really excited to continue playing here in the future.”
Lions’ boss Neil Harris said: “We’re really pleased to agree a new contract with Fergie.
“Fergie’s one of those who has been here longer than a lot of people probably think, after coming on loan originally and he has played a lot of games for me.
“He’s a reliable player, and he’s got a lot of quality.”
Ferguson lost his place in the Millwall team midway through last season, but this term he has been a regular in the team scoring four goals in 28 outings.
“I’m really pleased that he has committed to us, as he deserves a new contract,” added Harris.
“He has quality at key moments – dead-ball deliveries, open-play crosses, and he’s scored a few important goals for us this year.
“We’re delighted to continue working with him.”
