Former Ipswich Town club captain Carlos Edwards has completed a Bosman free transfer switch to Championship rivals Millwall.
The 35-year-old Trinidadian finished last season on loan at the Lions, his debut coinciding with the start of a remarkable eight-match unbeaten run which saw them beat the drop by three points.
Having not been offered a new contract at Portman Road following five years at the club, the right-winger has signed a one-year deal at Millwall with option of a second year.
He said: “I didn’t even think about the league position to be honest. I was just really keen to go to Millwall and play, and it soon became clear to me that we had enough in the dressing room to go on a run and get the results we needed.
“For me it was really exciting because we were playing good football and getting wins and draws every game, so I was enjoying myself. To stay up was great and now I’m delighted to be joining the club on a permanent basis and really looking forward to next season.”
