Report: West Ham to offer Cheikhou Kouyate new contract at end of the season

Ramires Kick - Chelsea v West Ham

Cheikhou Kouyate is set to be offered a new West Ham contract.

Cheikhou Kouyate is to be offered a new West Ham contract at the end of the season, the Sun reports.

A new deal will be handed to the midfielder when the season ends, offering him the chance to commit himself to the Hammers on a long-term basis.

The 26-year-old Senegalese international, who signed for the Hammers from Anderlecht in 2014, has been one of the most consistent performers in the team since his arrival.

He impressed under the management of Sam Allardyce, but has taken his game to another level this season, scoring four goals and registering one assist in 22 Premier League appearances.

Able to play in defence or midfield, Kouyate has established himself as one of the most versatile players in the Premier League, and has utilised his energetic performances to great effect.

His performances are sure to have brought interest in him from other Premier League teams, and the Hammers want to tie him down as soon as possible.

His current deal expires in the summer of 2018, and talks will start this summer to reach a long-term agreement with Kouyate at the Boleyn Ground.
