In a busy summer transfer window, one of the interest Championship transfers was that of Jón Daði Böðvarsson swapping Reading for Millwall.
The striker made a move to London in a £700k deal back in July as Neill Harris overhauled his squad following a disappointing campaign last year.
Böðvarsson is yet to properly integrate himself into his new club, having made just one appearance in the Championship so far.
That’s not stopped him having an impact elsewhere, though, with him featuring twice in the EFL Cup and bagging a double in the penalty shootout defeat to Oxford United.
Despite not featuring too much so far, Böðvarsson says that he is already impressed by the way Harris wants his side to play, adding that Millwall’s interest was not new.
“It’s a small team. There are ideas that I like, and they have got good players,” he told Visir.
“The coach, Neil Harris, has a good philosophy and has been with the team for a long time.
They had been watching me for a long time, and I jumped at that.”
“I hope to settle in, I was fascinated when they talked to me,” he also told DV.
“They had been watching me for 2-3 years; they know what kind of player I am. This is fascinating.”
Böðvarsson arrived at Millwall from Championship rivals, so was more than aware of the reputation that Millwall fans have earned over the years.
He insists that those preconceptions were false, though, instead saying he has nothing but positive things to say about his new fans and enjoys their no b******t approach.
“They are fine. They have this stereotype of being aggressive, but I didn’t feel it,” he told Visir.
“It is much less about such utter nonsense than before. They have welcomed me and the atmosphere there is very fun”, he added for DV.
“It is honesty, no b******t. They like my style; I like to run a lot and go up the wings, this is straightforward football. It’s an environment that suits me. “
