Noble set for Hammers stay

MarkNobleWest Ham are ready to take up the option on Mark Noble’s contract at the end of the season and could be tempted to offer him a new three year deal on top.

The Hammers loyalist has been linked with Queens Park Rangers in recent days but has made it clear privately he wants to stay with the Hammers.

Harry Redknapp would love to take the player across London but realises how tough it will be as in a recent interview he declared: “Mark’s a Hammer through and through. I can’t see him leaving them.”

And the club itself is ready to take up the option with sources close to the player saying: “He loves it here and is ready to agree the option.”

The club will talk to the player at the end of the season and we were told: “Mark is a valuable player and we will take up the option with the possibilty of offering a contract extension on top.”

  1. Good news,there was never any chance of him wanting to leave we just want him back in the team now alongside Song,Kouyate and Downing with Alfitano and Jarvis to cover with Sakho and Valencia up front and Carroll and Cole as cover.
    That’s what you want HUGH and every fan in this club and also I think that’s what the 2 Daves would like,
    You had your try BFS bow your head be a man your man has had his day give us what we want it’s our club not yours.

  2. I could not believe the stupid rumours about Noble. Of course he should stay and lead the team. Nolan showed yesterday that he is a spent force and not worthy of a start. I am also concerned about Song who is going back over in terms of quality. He is giving the ball away too much and looks jaded. His trick is to fall over if he loses the ball to gain the foul but it is not always given. He has flattered to deceive.
    I would play Amalfitano, Noble and Kouyate with Downing at the tip and yes I would like to see Valencia and Sakho up front and look to play passing football again.

    Totally agree that BFS should go back to the successful pairings and not bring his favourites in to prove his point. His stubborn streak is slowly strangling our creativity and therefore our success.

    Surely the Gollivan must see this???

  3. Ahh! So that’s where the “story” has come from! Mark noble is nearing the end of his contract so of course he wants a transfer?!,,,, yeah right!
    He has no intention of leaving the Hammers so why even suggest otherwise!
