MILLWALL midfielder Jimmy Abdou has put pen-to-paper on a new two-year contract with the club.

Abdou's current deal with the Lions was due to expire at the end of the season but negotiations progressed smoothly when talks were held with the 28-year-old and his agent in September.

The deal was all-but agreed back then but a final meeting with Abdou's Paris-based representative could not be arranged sooner.

And the Comoros international ended any lingering doubts about his future on Thursday by committing himself to Millwall until the summer of 2015.

Abdou, who manager Kenny Jackett has described as his "best-ever" signing, has made 190 appearances for the Lions since signing from Plymouth Argyle in 2008.

He was voted the fans' Player of the Year at the end of the 2011-12 season and has been ever-present in the side once again this term, making 13 appearances.
