Danny McNamara has signed a new long-term contract at Millwall.
The Lions defender, 22, was due to be a free agent at the end of June but has now extended his stay.
McNamara impressed on loan at St Johnstone in the first half of the 2020-21 campaign and was recalled by his parent club in January.
The academy product came straight into the starting line-up and played the next seven matches – six of those in the Championship. He was rested for Saturday’s 4-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
The South London Press understands there is set to be other contract news this week.
McNamara told our paper about his delight at being back with Millwall after his senior debut for Millwall against Boreham Wood in the FA Cup.
“My whole family are Millwall fans,” he said. “They were brought up around the Bermondsey area. I’ve had a season ticket since I was little.
“I heard about the recall probably a week prior to Christmas. The gaffer rang me up and said: ‘I want you to come back – I can’t guarantee you are going to play every game. When you get your chance just take it’. I told him that if I have got any kind of chance to play in a Millwall shirt then I want to take it.”
