Bristol City winger Martyn Woolford in Millwall switch
Bristol City have sold winger Martyn Woolford to Championship rivals Millwall for an undisclosed fee.
The 27-year-old winger was in south London today to pen a two-and-a-half year contract with the Lions, having already successfully passed a medical examination at the New Den.
It brings to an end a two-year spell with City, in which he made 59 appearances and scored four goals.
Manager Derek McInnes said: "The chance to secure a longer-term deal with Millwall is something that appealed to Martyn and his young family, and we wish him well for the future."

Pontefract-born Woolford joined City from Scunthorpe United in January 2011, having previously played for York City.
In and out of the first team, he looked to have finally established himself at the start of this season when excelling in comprehensive home wins over Crystal Palace and Cardiff.
But the Yorkshireman, who had 18 months to run on his Ashton Gate contract, was unable to maintain that form and has since been squeezed out by Paul Anderson and Joe Bryan.
The deal that takes him to Millwall could eventually be worth six-figures if add-ons are included.
More importantly, his departure will free up further funds for McInnes to spend on priority targets in the January transfer window.
Woolford becomes the second departure for the Robins during the January transfer window, with Brett Pitman having turned his loan spell at Bournemouth into a permanent switch last week.
