FIT-AGAIN Ed Upson says he wants to make Millwall fans "proud" next season.
The midfielder missed the end of the 2013-14 campaign with an ankle injury but is raring to go ahead of the Lions' return to training next week.
And having made the move from Yeovil Town six months ago, Upson feels he made the right choice in swapping the West Country for south London.
"I'm proud to be at Millwall," he said.
"It's an honour to be here. I'm glad they came in for me.
"Staying in the Championship was a massive thing for me and it was something I was aiming to do, so in that respect it was a great move.
"There were other clubs interested, but it was Millwall who expressed the most desire and they were the club I wanted to go to the most."
Lions fans have taken to the 24-year-old in his short time at the club and Upson feels that has helped him settle quicker.
"When you go to a new club it's alway so important to get off to a good start, with the fans more than anything.
"I put in a few good performances and I was really happy with how things were going, but it was a disappointing end with the injury but it can't be helped.
"I've really enjoyed it – I think it's been an easy transition for me. I love the place, it’s a great club to play for and the fans are so passionate it's unbelievable.
"No disrespect to Yeovil or Gary Johnson because I enjoyed my time there and it was brilliant for me, but towards the middle of last season I was looking for a new challenge.
"I was really pleased with the reception I got from the Millwall fans, they were really welcoming. I hope to do them proud next season."
