West Ham sign David Martin from Millwall

West Ham have signed goalkeeper David Martin from Millwall on a two-year deal.

The 33-year-old, who is the son of Irons legend Alvin Martin, is the second keeper in a week to join the Hammers, following Roberto’s arrival on a free transfer from Espanyol.

Martin’s deal, which begins on 1 July, has the option to extend for a further 12 months.

“Signing for West Ham United is a dream, both for me and my family,” said Martin. “I’ve grown up around West Ham and to come to my boyhood club is a dream.

“I came to games as a kid as one of the supporters in the stands at the Boleyn Ground. I loved watching my Dad play, and I’ve continued coming to games throughout my career.

“You can see the impact the fans can have on the team and it gives you goosebumps. The fans at West Ham are brilliant and it’s fantastic to be a part of this great club.

“I’ve always been an enthusiastic and positive person – I’ll always go into training every day with that attitude to compete with Lukasz Fabianski and Roberto.”

Martin spent four years with Liverpool from 2006 to 2010 without making a senior appearance, spending much of the time out on loan before signing for MK Dons, where he went on to make more than 300 appearances.
