Two more years on books for Irons ‘veteran’

100 per cent Snoddy

Robert Snodgrass is set to remain at the Irons for another two years at least following the return of David Moyes.

The Scottish manager is a huge admirer of the 32 year old who has a year left on his deal and another year’s option in the club’s favour.

The manager sees Snoddy as the type of athletic player he wants at the club and it remains a big possibility that – assuming he retains decent fitness – he could remain part of the club until past his 34th birthday.

Whilst the manager has made it clear he wants to build a youthful and energetic squad, he believes the midfielder still has plenty to offer and can act as a great role model to the younger members of the squad.

His position is becoming not unlike that of Pablo Zabaleta who is a big dressing room influence wand whom Snoddy would replace as the dressing room elder statesman.

With five goals and some tremendously energetic running in 29 Premier League appearances for the club this season Snoddy’s Hammers days are some way from over in the manager’s world!
