Millwall fans react to reports David Martin could quit Lions to join West Ham United

The Millwall goalkeeper is reportedly wanted by rivals, West Ham United.

Millwall fans are reacting to reports linking the Lions goalkeeper, David Martin, with West Ham United.

The South London Press reports Martin could be set to sign for West Ham despite being offered a new deal with their rivals, Millwall. 

The 33-year-old moved to the Den from Milton Keynes Dons in 2017 and finally established himself as number one towards the end of last season.

But it is suggested he could be as low as third-choice if he joins West Ham, whose current number two, Adrian San Miguel, is out of contract this summer. 

 

To exacerbate Millwall's problems, should Martin indeed depart, their other two senior goalkeepers, Jordan Archer and Ben Amos, have already left at the end of their deals.

But what are those of a Lions persuasion making of the rumour?

This is what's being said on Twitter...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

@AdamMFCIlling:

I dont care if Martin wasn’t going to be our first choice keeper, We stood by him after the Brighton game and backed him, if he than turns down our contract offer and goes to sign for West Ham the guys a **** in my opinion. No other way of looking at it. #Millwall

Bad form from Martin, as everyone stuck by him when he ****** up and cost us a money spinning semi final! Daddy West Ham must have got involved!!!

Martin's father, Alvin (below, far right), spent 20 years as a player at West Ham.

Would Martin be missed if he moves to West Ham?

Have something to tell us about this article?
