Cheikhou Kouyate: Can play for West Ham against Sunderland

West Ham midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate has reportedly agreed a new four-year deal at the club as a reward for his form this season.

The Senegalese midfielder has been in fine form this season and has reportedly commited his future to the club having been rewarded with a new contract.

The Hammers rejected a £15million bid for the midfield enforcer last summer, and since then he has been instrumental in their Premier League campaign that has seen them rise to sixth in the league.

The 26-year-old joined the club from Anderlecht in 2014, and has now followed star man Dimitri Payet in signing a new deal.

Payet signed a £125,000-a-week deal this week, keeping him at the club for five-and-a-half years.

With reports of Kouyate’s new deal, manager Slaven Bilic looks set to build his team around the pair as they look to clinch European football this season ahead of their move to the Olympic Stadium this year.
