Michail Antonio could be offered a second new contract within the space of a year at West Ham.

The midfielder signed a new four-year deal with the Hammers in July following a fine first season at the club, following his move from Nottingham Forest in 2015.

Antonio has enjoyed a flying start to the season, scoring five goals in seven Premier League games – form that has earned him call-ups to the England squad under both Sam Allardyce and Gareth Southgate.

According to the Daily Mirror, West Ham ‘could improve that deal even further if he is able to maintain his consistency this season’.

Slaven Bilic revealed last month that he had spoken to Antonio to ensure that his surge in status does not have a negative effect.

“We’ve had a few talks. Make no mistake, he was confident before, he’s a very confident lad.

“All he has to do now is not to change – not to change the way he plays, the way he trains, everything, and we have to help him with that.”
