Millwall have signed Shane Lowry from Aston Villa on a permanent basis.

The 22-year old Australian defender has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee after impressing on trial for the Lions.

Lowry joined Villa in 2009 and has since had loan spells with Plymouth Argyle, Leeds United and Sheffield United. He made just three first team appearances during his time at Villa Park.
