Midfielder Jimmy Abdou has pledged his future to Millwall by penning a two-year contract.

The new season will be his eighth at The Den after he first joined the Lions in 2008.

Boss Neil Harris told the club's website the 30-year-old was a good role model for younger players.

He said: "I'm absolutely delighted that his contract is all sorted. "He epitomises what we are about in terms of his work-rate, his energy, his enthusiasm and the way in which he leads by example.

"Jimmy's enthusiasm for the game is infectious and his attitude is top drawer.

"It will be really key next season that we utilise that, especially in terms of our style of play.

"We want to get the ball forward and work up the pitch and Jimmy is very important to that."
