West Ham United have secured the future of goalkeeper Nathan Trott, exercising their option to extend his contract until 2026, reports Trott’s previous deal was set to expire this June.

The 25-year-old has been on loan at Danish club Vejle Boldklub since 2022, and his impressive performances have turned heads. This contract extension suggests West Ham see potential for profit in a future transfer, rather than integrating Trott back into their first team squad.

FC Copenhagen appear to be frontrunners in the race to sign Trott. The Danish giants are reportedly set to lose their current goalkeeper, Kamil Grabara, making them hungry for a replacement.Brøndby and AGF are also keeping tabs on Trott, but their interest seems less fervent. Brøndby might only make a move if their own goalkeeper situation changes.

Despite reported interest from England’s Championship, Trott is expected to continue his career in Denmark. This suggests a potential permanent transfer to one of the interested Danish clubs.

By extending Trott’s contract, West Ham have gained a valuable asset. They can now negotiate a transfer fee, potentially making a profit on the goalkeeper they’ve loaned out. No details regarding West Ham’s asking price or potential offers from Danish clubs were disclosed.

While Nathan Trott’s future won’t lie with West Ham’s first team, his successful loan spell has opened doors in Denmark. With a secured contract, both Trott and West Ham are positioned to benefit from his next move.
