CandH exclusive: Iron still holding out on new contract

CandH exclusive by Hughie Southon

Ben Johnson’s agents are still holding out on signing a new West Ham deal with the defender’s contract due to expire in March of 2024.

Ben is currently injured but has of course proved himself a very useful utility player over the last couple of seasons as the Hammers have achieved European status.

The club has been talking to his representatives CAA Base Ltd for several months but appear no closer to achieving an extended contract than earlier.

And although we have been told they may re-open negotiations nearer Christmas it will also need a big improvement in the club’s league form to help talks along.

There will be no shortage of suitors for the 24-year- old full back who has made 42 Premier League appearances since his emergence as a first team player.

The Hammers will also be hoping to tempt Craig Dawson into agreeing a new deal should there be a solution to his family issues.

  1. Well given that he has been utilised in all back four positions he has a strong hand! Utility player does not equate to first choice with Moyes and how do you judge his form when he is moved all along the back in crisis? – none of the others are. We have lost Perkins, Alese, Okoflex, Longelo, possibly Ashby, Chester’s, and Johnson is not rushing to sign. We are the opposite to the Busby babes and Fergie’s young stars!!!!!
