West Ham will not be rushing into new contract talks with goalkeeper Adrian despite his contract running out at the end of the season.
The brilliant Spaniard has been in sensational form this season – looking even better since he came back from his sending-off in the match against Leicester City.
And with his current deal coming to an end once this campaign is through the Irons might have been expected to already be in talks with the stopper.
But when signing a three year deal back in 2013 our negotiators had he foresight to ensure that a two year option in the their favour was also put in place.
And that will ensure that the 28 year old former Real Betis keeper remains at the club until at lest 2018 – great news in a season of great news for all Hammers fans.
A well placed club source said: “The two year option has turned out to be a particularly bright piece of business.”
