KEVIN van Veen has agreed to join Scunthorpe United despite late interest from Millwall in the striker.
Scunthorpe have been long-term suitors of the Dutch second division star and flew him into the UK yesterday after week-long talks.
The Lions made a last-ditch attempt to hijack the deal, agreeing a £250,000 fee with the forward's club FC Oss, but van Veen has followed through with his move to the Iron.
The League One club have given van Veen a three-and-a-half-year contract. It's believed Millwall had reservations about offering such protracted terms to an unproven player.
Speaking to the Dutch press about his move to Glanford Park, van Veen said: "Until a minute before we started negotiations with Scunthorpe, Millwall were very concrete.
"Scunthorpe manager Mark Robins, a former Manchester United striker, and his staff have convinced me [to sign]."
"I'd have liked to finish the season in Oss, but such an opportunity can be hard to turn down. This offers me some financial security."
