DAVID Forde is set to discuss an extension to his Millwall contract now that the club's Championship status has been secured.
Forde turned down the offer of a new deal in December last year but says he hopes to agree a financial package with chairman John Berylson in the coming weeks.
Manager Ian Holloway has admitted that if Forde's future at the club hinges on money, the Republic of Ireland international "will probably go elsewhere."
Forde said: "My contract finishes so I'll have a chat with the chairman and the manager and see where we're at.
"We've spoken briefly but the main thing since Ian came in was that we'd get safe and speak then. I didn't foresee it taking this long but the main aim was staying up."
With Berylson watching on, Forde made a string of fine stops in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Bournemouth as the Lions secured their Championship status for another season.
Forde then celebrated survival by lighting up a cigar with Millwall's American owner.
"It always helps when you keep a clean sheet, make a few saves and the chairman is there watching," Forde said. "It's an added bonus.
"When we got promoted at Wembley, John and I nearly burnt it down so we thought, why not do it at The Den?
"I've been here for six years and played nearly 300 games, so the club means a lot to me and it was very emotional for me coming off the pitch.
"Hopefully we can get something sorted but we'll wait and see. Of course I want to stay – under Ian Holloway, the future is bright and he can be very successful here.
"It has showed over the last eight games – and since he first came to the club – that he's an exceptional manager.
"Staying up is a fantastic feeling.
"When Ian first came in we weren't getting the results we deserved, but I was more worried last year when we were struggling to get over the line.
"We've shown we're a good side and this is certainly the best squad that's been assembled since I've been at the club. Under the right leadership, we can be successful."
Asked whether, since turning down the Lions' original contract offer, he had reconsidered his future at the club, the goalkeeper added:
"I certainly think so. I've got to look after me and my family and it wasn't to be at the time I suppose.
"I think Holloway can get the best out of the chairman so hopeful we can sit down and have a chat."
But Holloway is unsure whether Millwall will be able to keep hold of Forde.
The Lions boss said: "I don't know is the honest answer because I imagine lots of people will want him.
"The great thing is he cares a lot about the place, which might give me a chance. If it's down to money he'll probably go somewhere else – I'm only being honest.
"But I might have a chance because he loves it here – and he's cracking on a bit now! I wish I was 34 – I look about 106 at the moment!
