West Ham are edging closer to finalising a deal with a kit manufacturer to commence from next season, it has been reported by ExWHUEmployee.

At present, the club have an agreement in place with Umbro, who have been the clubs supplier since 2015 – having signed an extension to the partnership back in 2020.

Umbro have overseen a historic period for West Ham, providing the kit designs for our memorable and emotional Farewell Boleyn campaign, with the club then making a move from Upton Park to the London Stadium in 2016.

With the current deal set to expire at the end of this season, Ex reported that the club have been open in the market at potential new suppliers – however Umbro, despite no agreement in place at the time, pressed ahead with designs for our kit for the next campaign.

Speaking on The West Ham Way Podcast, Ex has now reported that a new agreement with Umbro is being finalised, which would see our partnership with the sportswear brand beyond its existing seven year spell.

Unless another manufacturer, like Nike or Adidas, come forward with a more lucrative proposal, the agreement with Umbro is set to be sealed soon.

Ex will be keeping fans up to date on the progress of the deal and all other club matters on Patreon.
