Twenty-four hours after tying down Reece Burke to a new four-year deal, West Ham have announced that Martin Samuelsen has also signed a new four-year contract with the Club.
The Norwegian winger, who joined the club last summer from Manchester City, has put pen to paper on a deal that will see him remain with the Hammers until 2020.
The 19-year-old made his debut for the club against Maltese side Birkirkara in last season’s Europa League qualifiers.
He then moved on loan to League One outfit Peterborough United from November last season making 20 appearances for Posh and scoring two goals and he was heralded for his performances including an excellent game against WBA in the FA Cup.
The youngster’s superb debut season was then rounded off in June by a senior international debut, as he turned out for Norway in a 3-2 win over Iceland in Oslo.
The hot prospect revealed his delight having committed his future to the Hammers for a further four years stating, “I’ve been here for a year now, and nothing makes me happier than signing a new contract at the Club to stay even longer,” he said.
“I’ve really enjoyed the year I’ve had at the Club so far and I want to build on that. It’s just been one upward journey so far, and I’m really happy to sign a new deal and hopefully I can push on and do even better.
“This season, I think it’s either going to be another loan or first team football for me at West Ham,” he continued. “I really enjoyed my time at Peterborough United last season and to have another spell playing good football on loan somewhere would be great.
“Both options would be good for me, but one is tougher to achieve than the other! Whatever happens for me this year, I’ll go into it 100 per cent committed. My long-term goal is to get into the West Ham first team.
“It’s a huge moment in history for West Ham with the move into the new ground and just playing the 20 minutes against Juventus have made me hungrier for even more game time there.
“It’s a fantastic Club and we have now got a fantastic Stadium to match it and the fans are fantastic too!
“It’s just amazing to commit myself further to the Club and I can’t wait for what the next four years has in store for me with West Ham.”
