'Easy decision' on new deal for Millwall's Romeo

MAHLON Romeo has signed a new deal with Millwall until 2019 with the option of a further year.

Romeo, 22, was already contracted to the club until 2019, but with promotion to the Championship Millwall expect to negotiate improved terms with a number of players, including Byron Webster and Lee Gregory.

Romeo made a goal-scoring debut for Millwall against Walsall in February 2016 and has made 58 Lions appearances.

"I'm really happy about it," Romeo told Millwall’s website. "We are in the Championship now and we have a really good squad that I'm really glad to be a part of.

"It was an easy decision. I am delighted that the offer was made and I am raring to go and start the season. I think we have what it takes to do well in this division.

"Everyone is happy to be back and we are all really excited and ready to go. We know what is to come. There is a lot of high quality in this League, but I think we are ready for the challenge."
