Millwall have completed the signing of 34 year old striker, Ricardo Fuller, on a one year deal.
Fuller, who made 27 appearances for Blackpool last year, scoring 6 goals is Ian Holloway’s fourth summer signing at The Den. Millwall have snapped up the veteran player for free, after he rejected a new deal at previous club, Blackpool, who are going through some tough times.
Ian Holloway missed out on the services of striker Bobby Zamora after he signed a new contract with his club QPR, so it looks as if Fuller is Zamora’s replacement.
During his career, Fuller has netted 114 goals for 11 different clubs which include the likes of Stoke, where he spent a 6 year period, and Southampton where he scored 9 goals in 31 appearances.
Fuller told the club’s official website, “My agent told me that the manager Ian Holloway liked me – to be fair, I always seem to score against his teams.”
Talking about his Blackpool situation, Fuller said, “I spent last year at Blackpool, they offered to extend the second year but it’s well documented what’s going on there. And with all due respect I like a club with ambition.
“My agent told me about the move and I said Millwall is a good club and I’ve heard their American owner is quite ambitious.”
Fuller is the fourth new arrival at the club after manager Ian Holloway secured the signatures of Carlos Edwards, Lee Gregory and Byron Webster.
