Eastbourne Borough have confirmed that highly-rated youngster Harry Ransom has agreed a deal to join Championship side Millwall in the summer transfer window.

Millwall have completed a deal to sign promising Eastbourne Borough centre-back Harry Ransom, the non-league club has confirmed on their club website.

The defender has been on the radar of the Championship side over the course of this season and he has trained with Millwall on “various occasions”. Manager Neil Harris told the South London Press and Mercury that the club were keen to complete a deal for the 19-year-old. He said:

“Harry has trained with us on various occasions and we’ve seen him play extremely well for Eastbourne Borough this year. I’ve shown in the past that signing players from non-league is a big part in my belief that players, particularly young ones, get given an opportunity. Harry is a player we like and hopefully, we might be able to do something to bring Harry into the club in the near future.”

Now, Harris has got his man. The two clubs have agreed a deal which will see Ransom move to The Den at the end of the current season. During a game between Eastbourne Borough and Hungerford Town last week, a number of football league clubs were in attendance to watch Ransom play.

However, it is Millwall that have pounced and secured the signature of the promising defender. Ransom made his way through Eastbourne Borough’s academy ranks before breaking into the first-team, where he has made a name for himself.
