West Ham striker Michail Antonio has signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract.
The 30-year-old, whose previous deal was due to expire at the end of this season, has committed himself to the Hammers until 2023.
‘I’ve been here for five and a half years, this season will be six and by the time my contract expires it will be eight years,’ Antonio told West Ham TV.
Michail Antonio has signed a fresh four-year deal to keep him at West Ham until 2023
The 30-year-old started the season in impressive form and has committed himself to the club
‘Before I signed here, the longest I had been at a club was two years, so it shows that I’ve been here, done my work, been able to secure my position and keep growing as a player.’
Antonio joined West Ham in 2015 from Nottingham Forest for what now looks a bargain £7million.
The south Londoner, who began his career with non-league Tooting and Mitcham, has made 161 appearances for the Hammers and scored 41 goals.

Antonio’s form after the restart, having been converted from a winger to a striker by manager David Moyes, really caught the eye.
He scored eight goals in six Premier League matches, including all four in the 4-0 win at Norwich.
This season Antonio has been hindered by a hamstring problem but has still found the net three times in seven appearances.
