Millwall have completed the signing of Scunthorpe United defender Murray Wallace for an undisclosed fee.
The 25-year-old, who can play at centre-back and at left-back, completed his medical and finalised personal terms at The Den this afternoon.
The Lions have not disclosed the length of contract – a new policy by the South London club.
Millwall made a bid which triggered Wallace being able to discuss a move to the Championship outfit. He only flew back into the UK this week following a summer break away.
Wallace told the club’s official website: “My whole aim when I joined Scunthorpe was to get to this level.
“They had ambitions to get to the Championship as well and unfortunately they missed out. I’m delighted now I’ve got the chance to play at this level with Millwall.
“I’ll give absolutely everything on the pitch. I like a good tackle and pride myself on my competitiveness, so I think I’ll fit in well here and be a success.”
Lions boss Neil Harris added: “Murray is one we’ve chased since the first day of the summer.
“He’s been a great servant to Scunthorpe and been one of the best centre-halves in League One over the last three seasons.
“He’s put in some very strong performances against us over the years and epitomises exactly what Millwall is as a football club in the way he plays.”
