Sam Allardyce has paid tribute to Mark Noble after the player signed a new long term deal at the club.
He said: “Mark Noble is West Ham born and bred, he’s been here all his career and extending that today is a rare thing. It is good for everyone.
The manager believes the 27 year old’s achievement is rare in a period where instant success is essential and less emphasis is placed on the nurturing of youth.
He said: The supporters relate to Noble as one of their own, there’s no doubt about that. There is more affection towards him because it happens less.
