West Ham forward Michail Antonio has signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract.
The 30-year-old, whose previous contract was due to expire at the end of this season, has pledged to the hammers until 2023.
“I’ve been here for five and a half years, this season it will be six and when my contract expires it will be eight years,” Antonio told West Ham TV.
“Before signing here, the most I had been in a club was two years, so it shows that I have been here, I have done my job, I have been able to secure my position and continue to grow as a player.
Antonio joined West Ham in 2015 from Nottingham Forest for what now seems like a bargain of £ 7 million.
The South Londoner, who started his career with Tooting and Mitcham out of the league, has made 161 appearances for the Hammers and scored 41 goals.
Antonio’s form after the restart, after being converted from winger to forward by the coach David moyes, it really got attention.
He scored eight goals in six Premier League games, including all four in a 4-0 win at Norwich.
This season Antonio has been hampered by a hamstring problem, but has still found the net three times in seven appearances.
