West Ham co-owner David Gold adamant they will try to keep Reid

Winston Reid and Libor Kozak

The New Zealand international is yet to sign a new contract at the club, who are determined to keep him.

West Ham United owner David Gold has said that the club haven’t given up on keeping defender Winston Reid.

The New Zealand international is out of contract at the end of the season, and has been heavily linked with a move to a number of clubs in the summer.

The centre-back was linked with a move throughout the January transfer window, but the Hammers managed to keep their star man amidst the interest, in the hope of getting him to sign a new contract presumably.

Now, the club’s owner David Gold has said via Twitter that the club haven’t given up on getting the defender to sign a new contract, when asked by another user if it was safe to assume they’d given up on trying to keep their man.

According to the Mirror, the 26-year-old is set to join West Ham’s rivals Tottenham on a free in the summer, who will offer him a £60,000-a-week deal to secure his signature ahead of the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool.

However, if Gold’s tweet is to be believed, and there is no reason it should not be, his current club haven’t quite given up on securing their player to a new contract just yet.
