MILLWALL are set to complete a deal for defender Joe Martin.
The 26-year left-back is believed to have passed a medical and agreed personal terms with the Lions as Neil Harris continues to shape his squad for next season.
Martin, who made 161 league appearances and scored eight goals for the Gills, is out of contract after five seasons at the club.
He joined from Blackpool in 2010 and was named in the 2012-13 League Two team of the season as Gillingham won promotion.
He is the son of the former West Ham player, Alvin, and his brother David is a goalkeeper with MK Dons.
Martin will also add another dimension to Millwall’s set-piece options, having developed a reputation as a quality striker of a dead ball.
Manager Neil Harris has made signing a left-back and striker a priority and NewsAtDen understands that the first part of that plan is now in place.
The club are also expected to approach Bradford again with an improved offer for target man James Hanson.
But that potential deal is slightly complicated by the stalled takeover talks at Bradford.
