Aaron Cresswell has signed an extended contract with West Ham, tying him to the club until 2023.

The left back's days at the club had seem numbered as recently at last month after he lost his place to Arthur Masuaku.

But since returning in place of the French defender following his dismissal against Aston Villa, Cresswell has enjoyed a good spell of form - which appears to have led to the new deal.

"I've been here for six years and I've loved every minute of it," Cresswell told "I want to continue that and to extend the stay is fantastic news for me and my family.

"I'm looking forward to the next few years ahead. We've got a fantastic changing room. Everyone gets on. There are no egos and everyone is together.

"If you want to push on in the league then you need that team spirit and togetherness. I think we've certainly got that.

"We're all on the same page - the owners, the board, the coaching team, the players and the fans. We're all pushing in the right direction and, if we can keep doing that, we'll be okay."

Cresswell joined West Ham from Ipswich Town in a deal worth around ?4million in July 2014. He was Sam Allardyce's third signing that summer, following Cheikhou Kouyate and Mauro Zarate. 12 months later he signed an improved deal, purportedly to stave of interested from other parties.

12 months later he signed a third contract - a new five-year deal that tied him to West Ham until 2021. His latest arrangement extends that stay at the club for an additional two years.
