Report: Sullivan wants new contracts for Aaron Cresswell and Michail Antonio

David Sullivan reportedly wants new deals for Aaron Cresswell and Michail Antonio.

According to The Mirror, West Ham United's co-chairman David Sullivan wants Aaron Cresswell and Michail Antonio to sign new contracts with the club.

The Hammers have been enjoying a superb season under Slaven Bilic, and now sit just one point off a Champions League place in a shock turn of events this season, as fans were mostly looking for a top half finish in Bilic's first season.

Now, some of West Ham's top players have been rewarded with new contracts recently, as players like Dimitri Payet and Cheikhou Kouyate have both been handed improved deals as a result of their superb performances over the course of the season.

Now, according to The Mirror, co-chairman David Sullivan is looking to offer two more players new contracts, in left back Aaron Cresswell and winger Michail Antonio.

Left back Cresswell signed for the Hammers from Ipswich Town back in the summer of 2014, and his excellent displays have not only triggered talk of an England call-up, but actually landed him a new five-year contract last summer.

Now, Cresswell could be in line for yet another new contract at West Ham, with Sullivan keen to reward him for his performances, and fend off interest from Premier League rivals.

Meanwhile, winger Antonio has been exceptional since arriving from Nottingham Forest back in September, scoring seven goals in 23 games out wide, offering power, pace and relentless endeavour to become a key player under Bilic.

Unsurprisingly, the 25-year-old is now also in line for a new deal, rewarding him for a quite outstanding first season in the Premier League.

Do you think Cresswell and Antonio deserve new contracts?
