DAVID FORDE has revealed he is hoping to discuss a contract exentsion with Millwall once he has returned from his summer break.
The Lions goalkeeper was the star performer for the Republic of Ireland against England last week – making a string of crucial saves as the Boys in Green claimed a creditable 1-1 draw at Wembley.
And since being praised for his performance by Three Lions manager Roy Hodgson, Millwall fans have begun to worry that Forde's exploits could attract interest from rival clubs.
But the 33-year-old, who has just 12 months remaining on his current deal, expects to hold discussions about his future once a new manager has been installed at The Den.
He said: "It comes down to security. I'm no different to any other lexapro to buy footballer – at the end of the day my family comes first so that's going to be paramount. I'm a Millwall player and I haven't had any contact with anyone."
Forde is still on international duty with Ireland and is set to start against the Faroe Islands in a World Cup qualifier on Friday – so he is far from hung up on his contract situation.
"I've got a job to do with Ireland first so I am not even contemplating next season yet," he said. "I'll take a break, go on holiday and spend some time with my family and kids after what has been a long, tough season. But once I get back I'm sure I'll sit down with the new manager and have a chat about my contract."
