Taking to Twitter, many West Ham United fans have shared their excitement after ExWHUemployee’s update on a very popular player at Rush Green.
Indeed, as per the reliable club insider, goalkeeper David Martin may not be leaving the club after all.
According to Ex, the 35-year-old could now stay on at the London Stadium in the possible role of working with academy keepers and as a back up option (Twitter).
He was originally touted with a possible exit from east London, with the insider recently claiming that he did look set to leave although there was a chance he could stay.
The latter scenario now looks more likely to take place in a development which has excited plenty of supporters on social media.
A known West Ham fan, Martin is also apparently a ‘very popular’ player behind the scenes and ‘very good person’ off the field – leaving little wonder why fans are happy to hear he could be staying.
One supporter even branded it ‘huge news’, find a flavour of their best verdicts down below.
West Ham fans flock to ExWHUemployee claim
“Absolutely love to see this. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bloke. Well in Dave”
“Honestly very happy he’s staying”
“Gooo glad he’s staying and when we was at our lowest with worst keeper in EPL history be picked us up”
“Hoped this would happen. He’s probably on the lowest wage in our squad and wouldn’t be first choice anything higher than league 1 I’d have thought due to his age. Makes sense for both parties, glad to keep him around, great character”
“Huge news, proper West Ham”
“Great news. Seems such a fantastic character & is surely an asset off the field.”
“That’s great news”
