Robert Snodgrass agrees West Ham contract extension

West Ham midfielder Robert Snodgrass has signed a new one-year contract extension.

The 31-year-old Scotland international has agreed a deal that will keep him at London Stadium until the summer of 2021, with a further 12-month option.

“Sometimes you get a chance to play for one club that’s special, going through that special time, and I believe at this moment that’s West Ham,” he said.

Snodgrass joined West Ham in January 2017 but initially struggled to establish himself in the side and spent the 2017/18 season on-loan at Aston Villa.

However, he returned last summer and found favour under new boss Manuel Pellegrini.

He played in 38 matches in all competitions in the 2018-19 campaign and was included in every matchday squad apart from two, which he missed due to suspension.

Manager manager Pellegrini said he was delighted the player had agreed a new deal.

“I am very happy that Robert has signed an extension to his contract, which is thoroughly deserved after a very impressive and consistent season,” he said.

“Robert brings many qualities to the team – great ability on the ball and at set-pieces, fantastic energy and work-rate, and excellent character and mentality in the dressing-room. 

“He has proved himself to be a very important player for us, a good influence on those around him, and I look forward to seeing him make a big contribution again this coming season.”
