West Hams current longest serving player Aaron Cresswell has agreed a contract extension to take his deal to the summer of 2024.

The veteran left back, who this summer will be marking an incredible 9 years with the club, had a year extension triggered by the club and the same will be put into place the following year also.

Cresswell signed for the club back in 2014 from Ipswich Town under then-manager Sam Allardyce and has gone on to becoming a constant at the club for almost a decade now, having notched over 300 performances in the claret & blue.

The defender has seen many ups and downs over the years, however the recent positive seasons in which West Ham have reached European football for consecutive campaigns, with Cresswell playing a key role in those successes.

This season though is certainly bringing its challenges, with David Moyes’ side struggling for form and somewhat identity. These are moment where experienced heads are needed and Cresswell certainly brings this with a cool mindset in tough times.

The news will come as a welcome boost to the under-fire Moyes, who is in his second spell of managing not only the club by Cresswell too, in the hope that results will turn and fast.

Cresswell is expected to continue to play a key role under Moyes as West Ham clamber to get our Premier League season on track, with the World Cup break fast approaching. The visit of Leicester City on Saturday marks the final game before the break, and it is one now that is simply a must-win.
