Another new deal at West Ham as experienced regular puts pen to paper

Lukasz Fabianski has extended his contract with West Ham by a further year to commit his future until the end of next season.

The Poland international, 35, has been the first-choice keeper at the London Stadium since joining from Swansea in 2018.

Fabianski would have been out of contract at the end of the season but has now extended his stay until the summer of 2022.

He told the club website: “I’m happy that it has been sorted, it’s done and at the same time I would like to say I’m very thankful for the belief the club has put in me and I want to just continue to do well for the team, for the club and for the fans.

“I’m really pleased and really looking to continue to work hard and put in good performances for the club.”

Fabianski has made 90 appearances for West Ham, keeping 22 clean sheets, and won the Hammer of the Year award at the end of his first season at the club.

He added: “I’m really enjoying it. I think it has been a really good move for me and since I came here I’ve felt very settled.

“The transition for me was very easy and I really enjoy playing for this football club, so I am happy I can stay a bit longer and continue to do my best on and off the pitch.”

Fabianski has followed in the footsteps of club captain Mark Noble, who signed a new one-year deal on Tuesday.

Noble to have one more season

The midfielder has confirmed that his new contract with his boyhood club will be his last, bringing an end to 18 years of service.

In an open letter on West Ham’s website, Noble said: “I am delighted to have accepted the opportunity to extend my contract with the club, until the summer of 2022.

“I have also decided, after much consideration, that the 2021/22 season will be my 18th and final one as a first-team player at West Ham United.

“It is a decision I have made following a lot of discussion with my family, my friends and people at the football club.

“First and foremost, I still firmly believe I have a lot to offer on the pitch. I would not have signed a new contract if I didn’t feel I could do myself justice or bring value to the team.

“Next season is going to be very emotional for me, but right now is not the time for reflection or looking back on my career.

“I’ve made this announcement at this time so that I can now just get back to focusing with the players and staff on finishing this season as strongly as we possibly can.”
