David Moyes looks certain to take up the one year option of Robert Snodgrass’ current contract when it comes to an end next summer.
Snoddy missed the last part of the campaign following a back problem but returned to training as the club escaped relegation and is now fully recovered from his problem.
Moyes is a big admirer of his fellow Scot and sees him in Pablo Zabaleta terms – as a player who always shows great energy and a fine dressing room influence.
And although he will be entering his 34th year during the option year he is a player who keeps himself very fit and can supply the endergy of which the manager so approves.
As reported yesterday the club has Mikey Antonio and Lukasz Fabianski also coming out of contract but the 10 goal seasonal resumption hero is nailed on to agree a new two year option although the manager will be looking at goalkeeping options with Fab moving into his 37th year .
Mark Noble and Jack Wilshere also come out of contract in June of next year.
