Millwall have announced that striker Steve Morison has today put pen to paper on a new extended deal at The Den.

The 32 year old rejoined Millwall last summer for his third spell at the club, and with ten goals to his name in 2015-16, his career record for us stretches to 58 goals in 174 appearances.

Speaking to the official site after signing the new deal that keeps him with us until the summer of 2017, Morison explained.

‘I’m over the moon that the contract has been signed. It has been in the pipeline for a few weeks now and I’m glad to get it over the line off the back of a good win at the weekend. I signed a one-year deal with a view to agreeing a new contract and I’ve managed to do that while we’re in a nice position in the League. We’ve got plenty to play for between now and the end of the season and it’s been a good year so far, so hopefully we can top it off.’

Manager and former team mate, Neil Harris, was full of praise for the experienced striker as news of his deal came through.

Describing him as a natural leader on the pitch, he said.

‘Steve has been an integral part of our improvement this year. He has been a continuous threat in games, has led the line extremely well and has struck up a good relationship with Lee Gregory and also Aiden O’Brien at times, as well as some early signs of a positive partnership with John Marquis as well. Steve is important to us in terms of our style of play, but just as key as that, if not more so, is that he has been a real leader on and off the pitch. He has matured into a fantastic character and really taken responsibility for team results on his shoulders to try and improve us. He wants the club to move forward and to do that you need to have characters like Steve, Tony Craig, David Forde and Jimmy Abdou to name four who all have the club in their heart. Steve’s performances have merited him staying for at least another 12 months and I hope his form continues.’
