Ipswich Town have brought in veteran keeper David Martin in a player-coach capacity.

Martin, 38, was on the books at Liverpool between 2006 and 2010, but failed to make an appearance for the club, getting loaned out to the likes of Leicester, Leeds and Derby.

He went on to play more than 250 times for MK Dons, joined West Ham as a third-choice keeper in 2019 and spent last season as a player-coach at National League club Southend, making nine appearances for the Essex club.

A UEFA B licence holder, he has joined Ipswich to assist goalkeeper Rene Gilmartin, helping with training, scouting and recruitment, plus monitoring goalkeepers who are out on loan.

The club says he will 'train with the first team when required'. 

Following Vaclav Hladky's recent departure after his contract expired, Town's current senior goalkeepers are Christian Walton and Cieran Slicker, with the latter set to go out on loan.

Meanwhile, Ipswich have handed the recently-retired Sone Aluko a first-team coaching role.
