Arthur Masuaku signs long-term contract

The defender will stay at West Ham until the summer of 2024

Arthur Masuaku has signed a new contract that will keep him at West Ham until the summer of 2024.

The agreement also includes a club option to extend the deal by a further two years.

“I am very happy and very proud,” said Masuaku. “For me it was an easy decision. The Club wanted me to stay and so I didn’t even need to think about it – it was just a matter of time. Now I am looking forward to the Premier League season and giving my all for this club I love.

“It hasn’t been an easy road for me since I first arrived at the club but I have always been positive and I hope and I think that the future is bright for West Ham, and hopefully for me and the team. I am very excited, and happy to be a part of things here. The manager has been very good to me and I hope now I can repay his faith.”

The 25-year-old has been in a constant battle with Aaron Cresswell since his arrival in London from Olympiacos in a £6.2million deal in 2016. He has made 75 appearances for the club in that time.

Manuel Pellegrini said he was pleased to tie the defender down to a longer deal.

“We are very happy that Arthur has signed an extension to his contract and committed his long-term future to West Ham United,” he added.

“He is a player with excellent technical ability and has worked hard to improve over the past year. He finished last season in very good form and has returned after the summer determined to continue in a similar way.

“After three years in England, Arthur is now established and well settled, and we look forward to seeing him make a big contribution in the future.”
