Brady has conceded her relief at Reid finally put pen to paper on a new contract, and credits club co-chairman David Sullivan for making the deal happen.
“Winston Reid helps lift the mood around the Boleyn Ground by signing a new 6½-year contract,” Brady wrote in her football diary in The Sun.
“It feels as though negotiations have been going on for nearly that long, so I must credit my chairman David Sullivan who has played a leading role in seeing the Kiwi captain put pen to paper despite interest from other top teams.
“It is a good deal for Winston and a great deal for West Ham as we continue building a side fit to grace our stunning new home next year in the Olympic Stadium.”
Good move for both club and player
Reid is rated as one of the better centre-backs in the Premier League, and him remaining at West Ham for the foreseeable future is certainly a boost to the club.
The London outfit are having a good season in the English top-flight and have ambition of playing European football in the coming years.
Keeping hold of a key player is a statement of intent from West Ham, and Reid gets to represent an ambitious club where he is guaranteed playing time.
