Millwall face competition to secure goalkeeper on new deal


Neil Harris has revealed that Millwall face competition in securing David Martin’s signature this summer.

The goalkeeper, 33, is out of contract at the end of June.

Lions boss Harris has already indicated he wants to keep Martin after the former Milton Keynes man put in a string of solid displays at the end of the campaign just completed.

“We are continuing negotiations,” Harris told the South London Press. “David’s form over the last couple of months has made him a goalkeeper who people are now taking note of and looking to employ.

“We’re fighting competition for David Martin’s signature.

“Talks will continue.”

Millwall’s goalkeeping department is set to be one area which sees the most change this summer. Tom King, fourth-choice, has already confirmed he will be moving on.

Millwall were expected to announce their list of released players before the end of this week. Jordan Archer and Ben Amos, also in the final weeks of their Den deals, have not been offered fresh terms.
