Millwall complete signing of Tom Bradshaw

MILLWALL have completed the signing of Tom Bradshaw from Barnsley – for a seven-figure fee. 

The move finally breaks the club's transfer record fee paid, almost 29 years after the £800,000 signing of Paul Goddard from Derby County in December 1989.

Centre-forward Bradshaw passed a medical today and initially signs on loan, with the transfer automatically becoming permanent on January 1.

"I'm over the moon. I've never been involved in a transfer where it's been on then off, on then off and on again, but this is something that I've been keen on since the start," Bradshaw told Millwall's official website.

"As soon as Millwall showed interest it was a perfect move for me. I've played against Millwall a lot of times over the years and it's a club that I've always wanted to be a part of. I can't wait to get going.

"My aspiration is to play at the highest level I can. I've played a lot of years in League One and I feel like I did well at that level. Any striker wants to a play at a level where you're playing against big teams week in, week out.

"It's a perfect location for me to settle and to enjoy Championship football with Millwall and hopefully pay the club and fans back to what they're expecting."

Bradshaw could go straight into the Millwall squad for Sunday's Championship clash at Rotherham United.
