Ian Holloway delighted with Shaun Cummings signing

12 January 2015

Millwall boss Ian Holloway has revealed his delight at securing the services of Reading full-back Shaun Cummings on a two-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old London-born Jamaica international made 86 appearances for the Royals after joining in September 2009, helping the club to gain promotion to the top flight in 2012.

A product of the Chelsea youth system, Cummings also enjoyed loan spells with MK Dons and West Brom while on the Blues' books.

Lions boss Ian Holloway said on his club's official website: "Nigel Gibbs has worked with Shaun before so he knows exactly what we are getting.

"He can play at wing-back or at right-back and he can run all day long. He can attack and he played in a team that got promoted out of this division.

"We're delighted to have Shaun on board as I think he can be a real asset for us over the short and long term. He gives us a new option and as a player he can contribute in defence and in attack."

Cummings added: "This is a very good club and that is why I came here. I'm very pleased to be here.

"The position in the league isn't where we should be so hopefully as a club we can step on. It is going to be an important time between now and the end of the season in getting the club out of the zone it is in and progressing forward.

"From a personal point of view, I want to hit the ground running straight away and play how I know I can play.

"I'm a hard worker and I never like to lose. I like to get forward and get crosses in but as a defender I also want to keep clean sheets and do well in my one-on-one duels."
