Jackett signs defender Bender

Millwall manager Kenny Jackett has completed the signing of free

agent defender Tom Bender on a one-year deal.

The defender, 20, has been on trial with the Lions since having

his contract at Colchester terminated by mutual consent in

January.

The Wales Under-21 international has now secured a permanent

contract at the New Den and offers manager Kenny Jackett an

additional option at either left-back or centre-half.
