Millwall have confirmed that James Henry will make his move to Wolverhampton Wanderers permanent on January 2nd.

The announcement comes following an agreement between the two clubs for an undisclosed transfer fee and it was always expected having seen him move to the club on loan earlier in the season.

All in, Henry made 163 appearances for Millwall, scoring 19 goals in his time with us.

Speaking to the official site CEO Andy Ambler confirmed that following the departure of manager Kenny Jackett, Henry indicated that he would be looking to move on and would not be signing a new contract so the priority for the club was to secure a move that suited us.

‘Following the departure of Kenny, James indicated as early as last summer that he would not be renewing his contract. Our priority now is to appoint a new manager and assess with him the areas of the squad that need strengthening.’

Ambler said that although this move hadn’t been set in stone, given the departure of Steve Lomas and the club needed to focus elsewhere, when the offer came in, which was acceptable, it was deemed in the best interests of Millwall to have this issue sorted quickly rather than letting it drag on, as obviously we then couldn’t command a fee for him.
