West Ham boss David Moyes will not be looking for further left back cover in January – should he be trusted with funds if he is still in charge.
It was believed that Aaron Cresswell was out of contract in June of next year Aaron Cresswell – Player profile 22/23 | Transfermarkt.
But Claretand Hugh has been told this evening that the player has signed an option and that he has a further 18 months on his deal which will take the left back past his 34th birthday.
The cockney scouser remains very much the first choice on that side of defence despite the manager signing former Chelsea man Emerson.
Moyes remains a big admirer of Cress although the summer signing has thus far made seven appearances at Premier League level.
A key Hammers source said: “We place great value on Aaron and information that he is out of contract next year is incorrect, He has signed his option and has 18 months left on his deal.”
