Forde 'delighted' to secure his future

13 June 2014

Keeper sets sights on the Premier League

David Forde believes the club is going places after penning a new three-year contract at The Den.

The Millwall and Republic of Ireland number one has been away on international duty for the past few weeks, but put pen-to-paper hours after arriving back in England following his country's friendly to defeat to Portugal earlier this week.

And the 34-year-old, who first arrived at The Den is 2008, is pleased that his future is finally sorted out.

"I'm absolutely delighted," he told Lions Player. "I suppose it's been an ongoing saga. Because of where the club was towards the end of the season, with the new manager coming in, it was a bit prolonged.

"I'm chuffed that we've managed to get it sorted and it's great to be signed. Going forward I think we can be really successful."

Forde is now off for a summer break but will return for the start of pre-season training, and says he can't wait for the new campaign to kick-off.

"I really feel that there is something starting to bubble here again," he added. "We've managed to get promoted into the Championship and sustained that for a few years.

"I think it's a real stage of progression, building on that and really moving forward.

"The manager was a big part of that as well with that he is bringing to the club. He's done it in the past and I'm like everybody else, my dream is to play in the Premier League. I've always said that dream would be with Millwall. I'd love to achieve that."

Look out for an interview with Forde on Lions Player later today.
