West Ham have signed David Martin from Millwall, just a matter of days after acquiring Roberto.
Son of West Ham legend Alvin, the 33-year-old goalkeeper will join the Hammers on a two year deal with the option of a further 12-month extension.
He has already worked with West Ham’s goalkeeper coach Xavi Valero, while the pair were at Liverpool and it is said to be Valero’s recommendation which prompted Director of Football Mario Husillos to bring the stopper to what he calls his boyhood club.
As well as his time at Liverpool, Martin has represented the likes of Leeds United, Derby County and MK Dons, while also being an integral part of the Leicester City side which topped the League One table and earned promotion to the Championship in 2009.
According to WhoScored, Martin made a total of 11 appearances for Millwall during the 2018/19 campaign across the Championship and FA Cup, keeping three clean sheets.
With Lukasz Fabianski set to stay as the undisputed Hammers number one, Martin will likely come in and battle fellow new signing Roberto to be the main back up goalkeeper.
Whoever comes out on top will mostly be seen in the cup competitions, a position which will bring a lot of responsibility as the Hammers faithful grow ever more keen to see their side embark on a lengthy cup run.
