Tyler Burey has penned a new long-term deal with Millwall.
Burey enjoyed a breakthrough campaign with the Lions last year, netting two goals in 15 games after a stint on loan at Hartlepool was cut short courtesy of a hamstring injury.
Burey was crowned as the club’s Young Player of the Year as a reward for his impressive displays in Gary Rowett’s side at the tail-end of the 2021/22 campaign.
The 21-year-old, who joined the Lions for an undisclosed fee from AFC Wimbledon back in the summer of 2019, will now spend the foreseeable future at the Den after agreeing fresh terms.
Burey told Millwall’s official website that he was thrilled to commit his future to the club, but also outlined his desire to push on this season.
“I’m delighted to sign a new contract, I’ve worked hard for it. I want to keep pushing on now,” he said.
“The manager is definitely trying to build something here, you can see that with the players who have signed long-term deals over the summer. Hopefully it is only a matter of time until it all falls into place.
“My career at Millwall has been good up until this point. However, I want more and I want to achieve more. I’ll take every step as it comes and strive to be the best I can be.”
Burey was introduced from the bench in Millwall’s 2-0 defeat at Sheffield United on Saturday and will be in contention this weekend as the Lions bid to bounce back against Coventry.
