Millwall gave confirmed the signing of former striker Tim Cahill on a deal until the end of the season.
The 38-year-old began his career in English football with the Lions way back in 1997, graduating into the first team at The Den and spending six successful years in South London.
Cahill departed for Everton where he became an instant cult hero, cementing his name as one of the most popular striker’s in the modern era of the Premier League.
The Australian is set to lead his side at the World Cup in Russia this summer, and will hope that six months in the English second tier will prepare him for one final crack at the biggest stage in world football.
Cahill’s last appearance in a Millwall jersey was the 2004 FA Cup final defeat to Manchester United, when the second tier Lions defied all expectations to reach the showpiece event at Cardiff Millenium Stadium.
Cahill took to Twitter to declare to fans that he was ‘coming home’, with supporters quick to welcome the legendary forward back to the club following a fourteen year absence…
Others in the past have promised and never returned. Let's have a holywood ending
