MILLWALL boss Neil Harris says new signing Connor Mahoney has had a "good footballing upbringing" at Cherries.

The winger signed for the Championship Lions earlier this month for a fee believed to be just over £1million, bringing to an end his two-year stay at Vitality Stadium.

Mahoney, 22, made just two first-team appearances for Cherries following his arrival from Blackburn in 2017, spending time on loan at Barnsley and Birmingham.

And Harris was pleased to get his man.

He said: "We're very pleased to bring Connor to the club.

"His crossing stats in the Championship last year (at Birmingham) were very impressive.

"He's a player who can take set pieces with both feet which shows the quality he possesses and he's an exciting young player. To be able to bring him to the club in the long-term is good business by us."

He added: "Connor has definitely had a good footballing upbringing and a good pedigree with Blackburn and Bournemouth.

"At Bournemouth, they do things right down there. The players have to be at it with their tempo in training and the way they play.

"He brings a real good work ethic with him, coming from his loan at Birmingham last year."
