Newcastle United defender Shane Ferguson has joined Millwall on a permanent basis for an undisclosed fee.

The Northern Ireland international left-back from Derry, a former Eglinton Eagles and Maiden City Soccer Academy graduate, has been on loan with the League One outfit since August, making 28 appearances in all competitions to date.

And Ferguson has now turned that into a full-time deal, signing an 18-month contract at the New Den.

Ferguson, 24, made 32 appearances in all competitions for Newcastle, with 19 of those coming as a substitute, and also spent time on loan at Birmingham City and Glasgow Rangers over the last three seasons.
