Cheikhou Kouyate has signed a new five-year deal at West Ham United


The 26-year-old midfielder joined the Irons in 2014, from Belgian club Anderlecht, and his new deal will keep him in east London until 2021. 

The Senegal international has made 64 appearances for the Claret and Blue, 32 of those coming this season.

He has scored four goals this term as the Hammers look on course for a top-six finish.

“I am happy to have renewed my contract with West Ham,” Kouyate told the club’s website.  

“I am very happy and would like to thank everybody here at the club, the manager, the fans and also my parents. I think that it is the start of the next chapter for us to go on and discover the new Stadium.

“It means that the club trusts me and that means a lot for me. There is a lot of work for me still to do and I need to continue working hard and prepare for the move to the Olympic Stadium and most of all to keep on entertaining the fans.”
