MILLWALL boss Gary Rowett is happy with how new boy Charlie Cresswell is settling into the squad during training.

The central defender joined the Lions on a season-long loan deal from Leeds United earlier this week and has wasted no time getting stuck in during training sessions.

This has certainly caught the eye of the boss, who is happy to see that Cresswell has plenty of confidence.

He said, via South London Press: "Even in the first couple of days of training he has put a few of the lads on their backsides.

"At 19 years old that takes a bit of confidence and strength.

"Charlie is a very good player in his own right.

"He’s already played for Leeds in the Premier League and already played for England U21s, he is really highly regarded."

Cresswell will be hoping to gain regular minutes for Millwall during the upcoming Championship campaign in order to boost his chances of breaking into Leeds United's first team next season.

There is a space in the starting eleven for Cresswell to take as Dan Ballard has left the club following the end of his loan spell from Arsenal.
