Hammer agrees new contract

Club captain Mark Noble has agreed a new one-year contract with West Ham according to a report by talkSPORT this morning.

The Hammers has been restricted to a bit-part role this season, starting just three games, but remains an important part of the squad according to David Moyes.

The Hammers have now handed him an extended short deal as reward for the influence he continues to have on teammates, with an announcement due later today the radio station says.

Noble has spent his entire career at West Ham, making more than 500 appearances for the club.

He is regularly used by the manager as a late substitution when West Ham need to see the game out and his attitude has been exemplary when called upon.

  1. Well deserved for Nobes – even if he is not a starter

    However I believe that the last match that he started was the 2-2 draw with Brighton?

  2. Sentiment, shouldn’t play a part in these deals… Mr West Ham (deservedly so) should not be given a new contract but should move onto the coaching staff.. ie youngsters etc. He is passed his best, legs are gone, we desperately need younger, more creative players for the future.. He should free up a place in the squad… Thanks for everything but no deal as a player imho.. COYI

  3. Just checked and Nobes did not actually play against Chelsea but did start against Brighton

  4. Ridiculous decision if it is a playing contract by all involved. There is absolutely no need to extend his contract, what will happen at the end of next season, another 1 year contract !!. It is just farcical, well I hope there is no excuses coming from the board about the lack of funds for new players. I am extremely disappointed in Noble too for accepting the contract, a reflection on the man I thought he was would have been to say no it is time to make room for players who can contribute. I have huge respect for him and will always have, he is a legend but I am disappointed in this decision.

  5. I must say that while everyone is entitled to his / her opinion I am disappointed by the negative sentiments expressed about Noble’s new contract
    Moyes obviously believes that he adds value on the training ground and in the dressing room and perhaps feels that he has a role in mentoring Declan as skipper
    Moyes has got many things right despite the sceptical response – the signing of Dawson and signing Jesse Lingaard rather than Josh King being two examples
    Newcastle made a number of signings before the season (Callum Wilson, Ryan Fraser, Jeff Hendricks and Jamal Lewis) – fans grumbled that we should have rivalled Newcastle for some of these players – while we dream of Europe, Newcastle are stumbling towards relegation with divisions in the camp and negative headlines

    Let us place our trust in Moyes and believe that he has a good reason for wanting to extend Noble’s contract
