David Gold comments on West Ham United duo’s future

Alex Song

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold gives update on the contract situation of Winston Reid and Alex Song, while commenting on Andy Carroll’s injury.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has said that Winston Reid is likely to sign a new contract.

The New Zealand international defender’s current deal with the Hammers runs out in June 2015.

The centre-back has been on the books of West Ham since 2010 and is an important player in manager Sam Allardyce’s team.

There have been reports that the 25-year-old former Midtjylland star could be prised away by a bigger Premier League club, but Gold is confident that Reid will remain a West Ham player beyond the end of the season.

Another West Ham player who is scheduled to leave the Boleyn Ground at the end of the 2014-15 campaign is Alex Song.

The Cameroon international midfielder joined the London club from Spanish giants Barcelona on a season-long loan deal on transfer deadline day.

Song, a former Arsenal player, has settled in perfectly in the Premier League, and Gold is impressed.

Gold also gave an update on injured striker Andy Carroll, claiming that the England international will be back in action in November.

Following West Ham’s 2-0 home win against Queens Park Rangers on Sunday, they are now seventh in the Premier League table with 10 points from seven matches.
