Michail Antonio is to be offered a new contract in the summer in order to keep him at West Ham.

The 27-year-old has been out of action for a fortnight due to injury, but is expected to be in the line-up when West Ham face Arsenal at the Emirates tomorrow night. And according to Slaven Bilic, Antonio will "definitely" be offered a new deal in the summer.

He can definitely make the difference we need," said Bilic, addressing the media at his pre-Arsenal press conference. "Hhe is making that difference week-in, week-out, this season and last season after he came into the team over the Christmas period.

"Hes been doing it all the time and, as I said, its a big boost for us ahead of a big game against Arsenal."




The former Nottingham Forest winger joined West Ham on transfer deadline day in 2015 but had to wait until the end of November before being given a chance in the first team by Bilic.

Antonio, who cost West Ham 7million went on to score nine goals for the Hammers in 2015/16 which led to him signing a bumper new contract in July of last summer ahead of the club's US tour.
