Danny McNamara has signed a new long-term contract with Millwall, according to the South London Press.
McNamara has been rewarded for his impressive performances following his return from his loan spell with St Johnstone during the first half of the campaign.
The right-back was ever-present for Callum Davidson’s team in the Scottish Premiership, and was handed his Lions debut at Boreham Wood in the FA Cup at the beginning of January, just days after it was announced that his loan deal would be terminated in Scotland.
McNamara then went on to start each of Millwall’s next six Championship fixtures, although he found himself on the bench for Saturday’s thumping victory over Sheffield Wednesday – with Mahlon Romeo preferred.
Quiz: Did each of these 18 ex-Millwall players ever score a goal at the New Den?
Having signed a one-year contract last summer, the defender’s deal at The Den was set to expire at the end of the season, but has penned fresh terms.
This extension comes as no real surprise.
McNamara has been absolutely outstanding since returning from St Johnstone and deserves this new contract.
Millwall are heading in the right direction under Gary Rowett, and McNamara has been a major part of that – epitomised by the fact he’s managed to dislodge Romeo as Rowett’s first-choice.
