Hammers want star man to sign for two more years


West Ham want Lukasz Fabianski to a new two year deal rather than the 12 months option left on his current deal next summerl.

Fab hits his 35th birthday two months before a contract renewal but keepers age well and the stopper is right back in his best form this season.

And the club are hopeful they can tempt him into agreeing  to remain at the club where he has become a star man until the end of the next season and hopefully the 22/23 campaign.

Fab has been one of the club’s best buys over recent years after arriving from Swansea for £7 million and there seems little point in splashing out millions on a new keeper with the current occupant being in such great form.

However, among those the club are ready to allow to move on in January or the summer are defender Ryan Fredericks and Robert Snodgrass who is also out of contract in June.

    Don’t agree with this unless he is not automatically guaranteed the No 1 spot .
    The game is so fast now it means older keepers are likely to be found out more .
    He is adequate, but I think we need a better No 1 next season .

      I think Fabianski has been brilliant for us yes hasn’t been as good since injury tho last couple games been better. But I’m ok with 2 year deal if there is a plan to succeed him. He would be a great #2 & mentor. I think Anang should of been sent on Loan & I like Trott done well at Wimbledon tho lost place last couple months bc got free experienced keeper. Needs works on his distribution, crosses etc but was top shot stopper in league 1 time he played
      But of they aren’t seen as clear path if love us to get a 22-27yo with plans to succeed Fabianski before we let him go not after like usual. Some good young keepers around Europe & Randolph isnt getting any better imo so be good to plan ahead & let a keeper succeed Fabianski while he is still about then could still be a solid #2.

    Hands down the best guy between the sticks in years. And even if he does have a day or two off throughout the season… Well, who does not?
