The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Pippa Field

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
