West Ham United are set to land Millwall goalkeeper David Martin.

The Premier League side are signing the experienced shot stopper as back-up to their current options, according to a report by the South London Press.

Martin, who is 33 years-old, is out of contract at Millwall next month and has been offered fresh terms by the Lions. However, it appears he is going to turn them down in favour of a move to their bitter rivals.

The Romford-born ‘keeper played 11 times for Neil Harris’ side this season and helped them stay in the Championship.

Martin has played over 400 games in his career and represented England at youth levels when he was younger.

He started his career at Wimbledon after spells in the academies at Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham. He then joined MK Dons 2004 but was snapped up by Liverpool two years later.

Martin never made a senior appearance for the Reds but enjoyed loan spells away from Anfield with the likes of Accrington Stanley, Leicester City, Tranmere Rovers, Leeds United and Derby County.

He left Liverpool in 2010 to re-join MK Dons and stayed with them for seven years, playing 339 games and helping them gain promotion to the Championship in 2015.

Martin signed for Millwall on a free transfer in 2017 and has mainly been used as a back-up at the Den. A surprise move back to West Ham is now on the cards for the experienced goalkeeper.
