West Ham striker Michail Antonio has signed a contract extension at the club, it has been reported by ExWHUEmployee.

Our Hammers number 9 has put to bed months of speculation surrounding his long term future by penning a year extension to his current deal, with the option of an additional.

ExWHUEmployee confirmed the news after reporting talks were ongoing with a number of players over new contracts at the club.

“We can confirm that Michail Antonio has signed a new contract with the club, and is one of a number of player to have been in negotiations in recent weeks, as we have revealed on the Podcast, stated Ex on The West Ham Way Patreon.

“Antonio has had a slight pay increase and been given another year in top of his contract which takes him now to the summer of 2025.

“There is also an option for a further year after this taking him to the summer of 2026 should West Ham chose to excercize it. If they do take up the extra year the Jamaican international would be 36 upon its expiry.

“There had been a number of clubs interested in his services but this new deal almost certainly keeps him until close to retirement age.

“The player has started the season well and will now have further years to increase his tally as West Ham’s all time Premier League top scorer.”

It will be seen as great news to many to have a player who has started the season in positive form commit his future to West Ham, as the club looks to build on the excellent start to the campaign with our European venture set to commence once again this week.
