Millwall boss Kenny Jackett has signed a new contract to keep him at the club for the next three years.

The Lions are looking forward to playing Championship football this season after Jackett guided them from the foot of League One to promotion to England's second tier via the play-offs.

He told the club's official website: "I've been very happy at Millwall, and I really want to build on what we've achieved going into the Championship."

Chairman John Berylson has paid tribute to the impact Jackett has had since arriving at The New Den, adding: "I am delighted that Kenny has signed a new contract which signifies his long-term commitment to the club and our vision for the future.

"When we recruited Kenny in November 2007, the first priority was to retain our League One status. Having achieved that, our goal was promotion to the Championship, and on that memorable day at Wembley in May that target was also realised.

"Kenny Jackett has proved, as we believed he would, to be the best man to lead Millwall forward."
