MARTIN COULD HEAD TO THE EXIT
EVEN if MK Dons’ promotion bid falters this season, David Martin may be playing Championship football next year as the keeper admits he could leave the club to realise his ambitions.
After re-joining the Dons in 2011, the 29-year-old’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season and any decision on his future could hinge on whether Karl Robinson’s side go up.
And while Martin insists he has no complaints about life in Milton Keynes, the stopper is aware he needs to make the most of his twilight years in the game.
“I would love to stay at MK Dons, it’s a great club and it’s ready to go boom into the Championship and hopefully the Premier League,” he said.
“If we don’t do it this year it will make it even harder next year and realistically I’m 29 now, retirement age is 35 so it’s something I’ve really got to think about.
“Obviously I’ll speak to the club and hopefully we can negotiate a new contract, but I want to play higher as well, so whether that’s at MK or a club which is already in the Championship, that might be the case.”
AMBITION: David Martin
