Nigel Martyn was brought to Elland Road by Howard Wilkinson from Crystal Palace for a then record goalkeeper fee of £2.25 million in the summer of 1996. He would go on to become the club's first-choice goalkeeper for six seasons and will be remembered by a generation of supporters for string of outstanding and unforgettable performances between the sticks. Indeed his consistency was such that years later at a supporters' dinner, Martyn was named officially as United's greatest ever goalkeeper, beating off competition from the likes of Gary Sprake and John Lukic – men who both won championship medals at Elland Road.
