Wolves' George Saville joins Millwall

Sport | Published:

Wolves midfielder George Saville has joined League One side Millwall on a month-long loan.

The 22-year-old moved to Molineux for £1million from Chelsea last summer, but has struggled to break into the first-team.

He has made just two appearances for Wolves in 2015 and spent time at Bristol City at the end of last season.

It is his second temporary spell with the Lions, having made three appearances in 2012-13 while on loan from Chelsea.

Saville could make his second Millwall debut tonight at home to Northampton in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

Milwall boss Neil Harris said of the deal: "George is a boy who has had a brief spell here, before so knows the club and the people.

"He has won promotion out of this division with Brentford and also helped Bristol City achieve the same success last season, so is used to this league and the level of competition.

"George plays for a Wolves side who line-up in a similar system to us, so he will have the knowledge to play the way we like to.

"He comes highly recommended by his manager, Kenny Jackett, both as a player and a person so we are pleased to have him with us."

Saville is the latest midfielder to leave Wolves on loan, with Lee Evans, Tommy Rowe and Jordan Graham currently with Bradford City, Scunthorpe United and Oxford United respectively.
