Millwall have today confirmed the signing of former Yeovil Town defender Byron Webster.

The 27 year old moves to us as a free agent following Yeovil’s relegation from the Championship and he will now join up with former colleague Ed Upson who made the move to us last January from the same club.

Moving to The Den, the defender joins on a two year deal which becomes official from July 1st.

The player has moved around a fair bit in his career so far, beginning life at York City back in 2004, before spending two years then with Czech side FK Banik Most. Having impressed Doncaster on trial in 2009 he then moved to them, and following successful loan spells at Hereford and Northampton, he moved to Northampton on a permanent deal in 2011.

This was the first time he played under former manager Gary Johnson, and the current Yeovil manager then took the 6ft 5in player to Yeovil a year later where he was a mainstay in their successful Play Off push that saw promotion to the Championship for last season.

His career stats (ex FK Banik Most) read 133 starts with a further 27 from the bench, and in that time he has scored ten times.

Last season he played in 45 matches for his former club in their first ever year at this level.

He joins the club as manager Ian Holloway’s third signing of the summer following on from the captures of Carlos Edwards and Lee Gregory.
