Ryan Tunnicliffe Signs with Millwall FC
It has been announced that the central midfielder has joined the club on a two-year deal following his contract ending with Fulham in June. Tunnicliffe has been a free agent this summer and spoke to millwallfc.co.uk about his delight at signing with the club.
“I’m delighted. It’s been a long summer for myself and there’s been a few days of negotiations, but it’s done now and I can’t wait to get going.
“I’m looking forward to getting into training on Monday and meeting all my new team-mates.”
“It’s been a tough summer being out-of-contract, but I spoke to Neil about the club and he really sold it to me – his passion was clear to see.”
He continued: “Hopefully I’ll bring a lot of good stuff to the club! I wear my heart on my sleeve and I give 110% every game – I think the supporters will like that about me.”
Neil Harris, manager of Millwall, also spoke of his happiness at signing the player. “Ryan’s a player of huge pedigree. He’s played first team football at Manchester United and done really well at Fulham at the top of The Championship last season.
“Again, we’ve had to be patient, but I met him a couple of weeks ago and got a really good feel for him. We had a great chat about how we go about our work and how I work with my players. He, like the rest of the players I’ve brought in, has got a point to prove.
“He’s a Millwall-type midfield player – he can certainly put his foot in and he can run box-to-box, too. He’s got a really good passing range as well. He’ll complement our other midfield players well.”
