Tom Elliott has joined Salford City after being released from his Millwall contract.

The 29-year-old forward has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal at The Peninsula Stadium bringing an end his 18-month stay at The Den.

Elliott made 57 league appearances for the Lions, scoring seven times after joining from AFC Wimbledon in 2017.

Blighted by injuries over the last six months, the 6’3” forward has struggled for game time and has made just one appearance this term, an EFL Cup outing in August.

 

Elliott won promotion from the Conference in 2014 with Cambridge before going on to win promotion to League One with the Dons in 2016.

He feels his experience can help Salford, owned by ‘the class of 92,’ gary and Phil Neville, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs and David Beckham, climb the out of League Two, where they currently sit 12th.

“I heard the ambitions, and thought it was a time in my career I wanted to be part of something special,” he told Salford TV.

“I feel I can bring goals, I’ve been around the leagues and I’m hoping to bring my experience here and we can go up the leagues.

“I can’t wait to get back out there.”

The Lions said: "The club would like to thank Tom for his service during his time at Millwall.”

Millwall fans took to social media to view their feelings about the departure.
