George Evans signed for Millwall for an undisclosed fee from Derby County on transfer deadline day.

  • Time at Derby County

Evans signed for Derby in the summer of 2018 for an undisclosed fee from Reading, and he signed on a three year contract. He would go on to make 28 appearances for the Rams, in a spell which was heavily disrupted by injuries.

The versatile midfielder who can also operate at the back, was signed by Frank Lampard, but due to injuries was never able to get a proper run of games in the team.

Phillip Cocu was made the new manager of Derby, when Lampard left to manage his former team Chelsea. Evans would not play many matches until Wayne Rooney became the new manager.

His last couple of games were a good note to leave on, as he started in his last two games as Derby ran out 1-0 winners against both Bournemouth and QPR respectively.

  • Signing for Millwall

The former Reading player was a deadline day signing for the Lions, and speaking to the South London Press, Millwall manager Gary Rowett said:

"George is a good size, has good athleticism, and  a good technical range of passing. When I see a player like that I think they can fit into the Millwall ethos- drive,  a little bit of aggression and that technical aspect."

Since signing for the Lions he has made a fantastic start. He started in the 4-1 win against Sheffield Wednesday as well as in wins against Reading and Birmingham City.

His best moment in a Millwall shirt so far will be when he scored a 95th minute equaliser to salvage a draw against Luton Town at Kenilworth Road last night.

Overall his time in South Bermondsey has good off to an excellent start, he will be hoping he continue this, and keep helping Millwall climb the table.
