City midfielder Marc Laird has signed for Division One side Millwall.
The 21-year-old Academy scholar will link up with our former reserve team manager Kenny Jackett, who took over at the New Den earlier this season.
Marc has been a regular face in the reserves for couple of seasons, and has enjoyed loans spells with Northampton Town last term and more recently Port Vale.
Jackett has moved quickly to secure Marc’s services, with his loan to the Potteries club only coming to an end this week, and he will be looking to the Edinburgh-born player to help move the Lions away from the wrong end of the table.
Academy Manager Jim Cassell, who has known Marc since he arrived at the Club in his early teens, says:
“Marc’s a terrific footballer, he has lots of energy and he can go from box to box with no problems. I think this is a great career move for him because we know that Kenny’s a developer of players as well. We’re always sorry when of the boys moves on, but it’s the right time for him and we wish him all the best.”
