Robert Snodgrass has signed a one-year contract extension with Premier League club West Ham until the summer of 2021. The new deal also comes with an option that will allow him to extend his stay by a further 12 months if need be.

The Scotland international found the back of the net twice in 33 Premier League games for the Hammers in the 2018/19 league season and provided 9 assists in all competitions.

He told West Ham’s official website: “I’m delighted to commit my future to this great club. Sometimes you get a chance to play for that one club that’s special, going through that special time, and I believe at this moment that’s West Ham. We’re trying our best to keep progressing and moving forward.”

“They’re building something special here. For me, it’s about trying to build on last season. Trying to get more goals and more assists and trying to be the best teammate I can.

“I will just take it one per cent at a time and do the best I possibly can. The drive for me is to be a better player; to listen and learn. We’re constantly learning, and the manager and his staff will want to implement more ideas, new ideas. To be part of that going forward, I’m delighted.”

Snodgrass, whose West Ham career started on a tough note after being sent on a loan spell to Aston Villa in the 2017/18 season, shortly after joining the Hammers from Hull City in January 2017, impressed on his return to East London under Manuel Pellegrini.

He quickly established himself as a mainstay in the team under the Spanish boss. Pellegrini also spoke about the contract extension. He said

“I am very happy that Robert has signed an extension to his contract, which is thoroughly deserved after a very impressive and consistent season.

“Robert brings many qualities to the team – great ability on the ball and at set-pieces, a fantastic energy and work-rate, and excellent character and mentality in the dressing-room.

“He has proved himself to be a very important player for us, a good influence on those around him, and I look forward to seeing him make a big contribution again this coming season.”
