Millwall have reportedly agreed a new contract with experienced defender Alex Pearce according to London News Online.
The defender has been with the club on a permanent basis since 2019, having previously been on the books with the likes of Reading and Derby County earlier in his career.
His contract with Millwall had been due to expire in the coming weeks, but the club have reportedly agreed a new deal on reduced terms with the centre-half.
Pearce has made 72 appearances in total for the Lions, which includes 26 in all competitions during the 2020/21 season under the management of Gary Rowett.
Millwall finished 11th in the Championship table in that season, and will be hoping they can push for a place in the top-six in next year’s campaign.
Which Millwall player has been carded the most in each of the last 16 seasons?
Plenty of Millwall supporters took to social media to react to the news of this rumoured agreement with Pearce ahead of the 2021/22 season.

He'll be on the bench but be a great morale booster for the club. He'll be like Williams last season I reckon.

It's just the 15 goals he'll cost us while he's playing that will be the problem.
