“It’s a great deal for the club and Winston,” The Sun quotes Sullivan as saying. “I am so pleased our hard work has paid off in getting him to sign.
“This shows the board’s commitment to keeping our best players. Winston is a great player for this club and he belongs here.
“West Ham are moving forwards and upwards. He is the kind of player we want to take us into a new era.”
Reid is one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League, and his original contract with West Ham was due to run out at the end of the season.
The former Midtjylland star was on the radars of North London clubs Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal, according to The Sun, and it is indeed a big coup from West Ham to convince him to remain at the Boleyn Ground.
As Sullivan suggests, West Ham are indeed very ambitious and are looking to break into Europe in the coming years.
Reid will be an important part of that, and him staying at West Ham also gives out a signal to other top players that the Hammers mean business.
