Adrian: West Ham goalkeeper

Adrian has hailed his relationship with West Ham’s fans after signing a new deal to keep him at the club until the summer of 2017 at least.

The 28-year-old’s previous deal was due to expire at the end of this season, but he has now committed for two more years, while the Hammers have the option of extending the deal by two further years if they wish.

Speaking to the club’s official website, former Real Betis goalkeeper Adrian said: “This is a proud moment for myself, my family and friends and I am really happy to have signed my second contract with the club,” Adrian said.

“I feel really happy for the club and the fans. I never imagined this kind of relationship with the fans. I spent 16 years at Real Betis and it was difficult to leave your home. But from the moment I arrived in London the West Ham fans had a special relationship with me.

“For me this is a really good moment and I just want to enjoy it. This is my third season here and I want to stay here for a long time.”

West Ham have enjoyed a strong start to the season and currently sit third in the Barclays Premier League table ahead of Saturday’s visit to Sunderland.

The club are also set to move into the Olympic Stadium for the start of the 2016/17 campaign and Adrian admits their new home was a factor in his decision.

“Next season is really important for the club,” Adrian said.

“I have enjoyed playing at Upton Park and I want to enjoy playing in the new stadium.

“It is a big step for the club and I am really excited about this moment.”

Since making his Premier League debut against Manchester United in December 2013, Adrian has been first-choice in goal for West Ham. In total, he has made 76 appearances for the East London side.
