West Ham will have to stump up another £20k a week to keep Samir Nasri for another season.
The club has an option on the player who joined on a lower than expected deal in January after serving a 12 month ban on a drugs related offence.
ClaretandHugh understands that at that time Nasri accepted an offer of around £50k a week plus £20k for each appearance s free signing.
Now however the terms will rise by £20k on the basic to take the Frenchman to £70k a week plus the same £20k per appearance and given his form since arriving at the club the new terms look more than reasonable.
He has another possible seven games to show that he is worthy of a new deal although the manager is already convinced the player must stay.
He produced a near man of the match performance against Huddersfield and showed himself as a real match changer.
And with all things being equal and barring any injury or form setbacks the deal will be done at the end of the season.
