DAVID Forde has given the strongest indication yet that he will sign a new contract with Millwall.
NewsAtDen revealed last month that Forde, along with Liam Trotter and Shane Lowry, were to be offered extensions to their current deals.
And the goalkeeper is eager to prolong his stay at The Den – despite harbouring ambitions to play in the Premier League.
His ultimate aim would be to reach the top tier with the Lions but he acknowledges that it is unlikely to happen this season.
"We are in talks about a new contract at the moment and things are progressing there," he said. "I've spoken with the manager about it and I'd love to stay. It has been a fantastic move for me since I came here.
"You look at our budget and gates compared to other clubs and we are small in that sense but we hold our own and can punch above our weight.
"But I do have that hunger, drive and ambition to play in the Premier League. I've always wanted to do it and the desire is burning inside me. It would be lovely to do it with Millwall of course but we'll have to wait and see."
