Former Arsenal and Gillingham right back pens Millwall deal

MILLWALL have bolstered their defensive ranks with the signing of 19-year-old right back Mahlon Romeo from Gillingham on a one-year deal.

Romeo has played in a handful of U21 games for the Lions in recent weeks and is expected to begin his career at The Den in the development squad.

Born in Westminster, Romeo had spells at Arsenal and Wycombe during his academy days before signing a scholarship with the Gills, where he made one senior appearance.

Speaking to the club's official side, he said: "I already know Alfie Pavey from my time at Gillingham.

"Alfie was at Maidstone then and we used to play them quite a bit in friendlies and so on. Everyone has been really friendly here already and I'm delighted to sign for Millwall."

    Does that mean the end for Carlos Edwardes?

      I don't think this says anything about Carlos.

      He will be separately evaluated and the proof will be on the training ground and the pitch.

      We all know the defence needs investment.
