West Ham spell

West Ham swooped to sign the stopper back in 2019 to provide competition and back-up to their goalkeeping department.

He spent the past three years at the London Stadium and made five appearances in all competitions.

However, his five games for the Premier League side came in his first year at the club and he didn’t play a single match for them over the past two seasons.

The Hammers decided not to extend his stay when his contract expired at the end of June and he subsequently became a free agent.

Martin has now returned to MK Dons having played for them from 2010 to 2017. He played 318 times for the Buckinghamshire outfit and helped them gain promotion to the Championship during his time there.

He has also played for the likes of Liverpool, Leeds United, Tranmere Rovers and Millwall in the past.
