Hayden Mullins backs Mark Noble to finish career at West Ham

Former West Ham United star Hayden Mullins is backing Mark Noble to sign a new contract and stay at the club.

Former West Ham United player Hayden Mullins told the Extra Time show for talkSPORT that he feels Mark Noble will finish his career with the club.

The Daily Mirror claimed during the January transfer window that QPR were interested on doing a deal for the midfielder, but Mullins doesn’t think he’s going anywhere.

“I saw the transfer links suggesting he would leave – I don’t think he’s going anywhere – I wouldn’t be surprise if he ends his career at the club,” said Mullins.

The comments will come as welcome relief to West Ham fans who may have feared that the club would lose one of their most important midfielders.

Noble is arguably the best at the club in terms of providing some edge in front of the back four, before turning and spraying passes forward into the feet of more creative and attacking players.

There is a real pressure on the club at the moment because according to transfermarkt, Noble’s contract expires at the end of the season.

The fact they didn’t let him go during the January window suggests that Sam Allardyce believes he does have a future at the club.

The pressure comes because West Ham only have a few months to work out a longer term deal.

However, he doesn’t seem to want to move and with the manager not suggesting he’s disposable, he should sign when that positive offer is put in front of him.
