Millwall have completed the signing of George Long on a free transfer from Hull City.
Long made 65 appearances for the Tigers after arriving at the KCOM Stadium as a permanent signing in the summer of 2018.
He did serve as the club’s No.1 for a decent period of his three-year spell with Hull, but wasn’t Grant McCann’s go-to option in the 2020/21 campaign as they won the League One title and promotion back into the Championship.
Can you name the Millwall player who has been carded the most in each of the last 16 seasons?
With the goalkeeper’s contract up in East Yorkshire, Millwall have confirmed that they have swooped to sign the 27-year-old on a permanent basis.
Bart Bialkowski has proved to be a reliable stopper for Gary Rowett’s side in the Championship over the years, but is fast approaching his 34th birthday and was in need of some competition for the new season.
Millwall have now delivered on that, with Long set to come in and provide the Pole with support for the 2021/22 campaign.
Here, we breakdown how the Millwall fans have been reacting to news of his arrival:

We've signed this goalkeeper but he's really obscure, you've probably never heard of him… https://t.co/V8JkIYqa0j

Bart is going to be 34 this year, long will be backup this season but let's not kid ourselves we'll need to look for a long term keeper sooner rather than later
