Academy goalkeeper Nathan Trott has signed an extended contract tying him to West Ham until the summer of 2022.

The Academy goalkeeper signed his first professional deal with West Ham in December 2016 but today put pen to paper on new terms, thus extending his contract by an additional two years.

"Signing this new deal is a great moment for me," said West Ham's third-choice stopper. "When youíre working hard every day on the training pitch, trying to perform as best as you can for the manager and your hard work finally gets noticed, itís a great feeling!"

Meanwhile Trott praised manager Pellegrini for taking a chance with youth - one more reason why he decided to extend his stay at the club. "He's really encouraging," added the 20-year-old.

"He tells you to be yourself, enjoy football and just try not to think about it too much - and I think that helps you perform.

"Seeing people that you've worked with since you were in the Academy and seeing them go to the first team training ground - and then being involved in first team games - is a big step for all of us and it inspires me to keep working hard."
