Michail Antonio has signed a new four year contract with West Ham.

However his improved status within the squad has seen the former Forest man land a bumper new deal that keeps him tied to the Irons until the summer of 2021.

"I'm delighted to have signed a new four-year deal," he told whufc.com. "I'd like to thank the Chairman [David Sullivan] because we had a nice little deal for this to get sorted.

"I've loved my time here and I'm just happy that we have managed to get things sorted so I can move onto next season and do what I've done this season.

"Last season I managed to finish as runner-up in the Hammer of the Year award and this year I've won it, so it's a case of pushing on and I don't want to drop my standards next season," he added.

"This year has been a better year than last year because I've played from start to finish and I managed to get the England call-up I've been dreaming of since I was a child.

"Hopefully I can keep pushing on and doing even better, because I always want to do better than I have done previously."
