Mark Noble contract update, relief for West Ham fans

West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble is reportedly on the verge of a new contract.

ESPN have claimed that West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble is close to signing a new contract at the club.

His current deal expires in the summer and ESPN’s report claims the club want to offer the 27-year-old a long term deal to secure his immediate future.

The update will come as welcome relief to West Ham fans because Noble has been one of their most consistent players over the last couple of seasons.

He provides quality on the ball in the middle and experience and can be a key part of the spine of the team over the next few seasons, as he heads towards his 30s.

The challenge for Noble when he signs any new deal will be justifying it and maintaining the high standards he has set for himself in the coming months across all competitions for the club.

West Ham remain well placed in the Premier League for an assault on the European places over the rest of the season and Noble will only help the team looking forward, if they secure Europa League football by the end of the season.
