Steve Morison is officially no longer a Millwall player after Shrewsbury Town turned his season-long loan into a permanent switch.
The veteran striker, 35, signed for the League One club at the start of July.
The Shrews opted to change the terms of Morison’s deal to free up another loan space in their squad.
The former Wales international played 89 minutes for Sam Ricketts’ side as they opened their campaign with a 1-0 home win over Portsmouth last weekend.
Morison, speaking before the curtain-raiser against Pompey, told the Shropshire Star: “I want to score more goals. I want to replicate the returns I’ve had in League One before.
“I’ve had three years in League One and haven’t failed to get to Wembley yet.
“I needed the change, but some people are scared of change.
“I can still do this, I still want to do this. That’s why I’m here.
“I’ve not missed a day’s training, I’ve played every game I’ve been asked.
“I haven’t scored as much over the past couple of years, that has been frustrating.
“But you have your ups and downs and hopefully I now can have an up year.”
