Alex Pearce has revealed that the “enthusiasm” shown by Neil Harris was key in him deciding to make the loan switch to Millwall.
The Derby County centre-back put pen to paper on terms on Friday morning.
The Lions have allowed Byron Webster to leave, with the experienced defender signing for Scunthorpe United.
Pearce started his career at Reading and is an experienced Championship performer with comfortably over 200 games at the level.
“The manager’s enthusiasm was key,” Pearce told Millwall’s official website. “I met with him, we had a good chat, and we spent a good amount of time together.
“He was really positive – he told me about how he likes his teams to play, and I was really enthused by it all. Everything went really positively.
“I’ll always give 110 per cent every time I’m asked to play. I’m predominantly a centre-back, I’ll be strong in the air and try and play when we can, though obviously we do like to operate with a direct style of play – which hopefully I can fit right into.”
