Winger excited by Millwall challenge as move is confirmed

MILLWALL have confirmed the signing of Paris Cowan-Hall.

NewsAtDen revealed that the Lions were poised to complete a deal for the Wycombe winger, who passed a medical and agreed personal terms at The Den on Tuesday.

And the two clubs have now issued statements to announce that the move is complete.

Speaking to the club's official site, Cowan-Hall said: "I'm very excited to be here and pleased to have the opportunity to take on the next challenge in my career.

"The manager has told me that I will need to work hard, but that's the bare minimum in my view whenever I play.

"I'm really looking forward to the rest of the season and I'll be doing everything I can to help Millwall get the results we need to move up the table."

Cowan-Hall is cup-tied so cannot play against Bradford this weekend. His Millwall debut is likely to come against Blackpool on January 10.

He has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal.

Millwall will pay a nominal transfer fee for the 24-year-old but have also agreed to extend Fred Onyedinma's loan move at Adams Park until the summer.

Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth said: "Paris has had a brilliant season for us so far and it's no surprise that he has attracted attention from bigger clubs.

"We would have loved him to stay but it's difficult to compete with Championship clubs because players want to test themselves at the highest level possible.

"I'm very proud to see how his game has improved during his time with us and wish him all the best at Millwall.

"Fred is a very talented footballer as well and it's a boost for us to keep him with us for the rest of the season.

"He plays in a similar position to Paris and we will continue to do what we can to bring out the best of his ability."

      @jim1222: He's not very tall, so presumably Ollie will be playing him at centre-half - only joking! Good luck son and hopefully you'll end up on the 'legend' list.
      Have a good New Year Jim. Are you going Saturday?
      Happy New Year also, to everybody else on here and every Millwall fan around the world!

    Good age, pace, eye for goal and a decent length of contract. Well done Millwall.

    That's more like it. but still only a baby. The good thing is he will play without fear. Plus if Fred gets a run in Wycombes first team can only be good for both us & Fred. Coyl

    Look, we are all excited by Cowan - Hall as he is QUICK, hungry and has the right attitude to do well. But there is still many more signings that need to be made if we are to compete in this league. Let's not get ahead of ourselves and wait and see what Ollie and the boards ambitions are. They will spend if they want to keep us up and they won't if berylson is not too bothered by going down as it will cut costs. Let's wait and see but it is only one peice in the puzzle completed.

    If Holloway identified Cowan-Hall as a possible target when we played Wycombe in August, he should have gone also for the right back Jombati imho.

    Good signing just as long as Holloway doesn't play him as goalkeeper or central defender. Seriously we could be playing with two wingers with hopefully a new striker to support Gregory
