Millwall CEO Steve Kavanagh says that the South London outfit have purchased “a significant area of land” in Kent with the view to building a modern, state-of-the-art training ground (Evening Standard).

The Hammers have been by far the more successful out of the two teams throughout their history.

It seems as though the Lions have a plan in place to turn the tables on the East Londoners, however.
