Mark Noble has given West Ham United fans the news they wanted to hear by declaring he’d like to see out his career at London Stadium reports the club’s website.
The Hammers skipper has been at the club his entire career and is that rare breed of player who wants to remain a one club man.
It’s almost 13 years since Noble made his debut for West Ham and has since gone on to feature for the first team almost 400 times and has a contract with the club until 2021, but would like to extend it further.
“I would like to finish my career here, that’s what I’ve always thought. I can’t see myself playing for another football team, but football is such a changing world so you can’t ever tell what’s going to happen next season.
“As I said, I’ve got three years left on my deal here and I’m not sure my body will let me go far past the age of 33, to be honest!”
It’s not been an easy season for West Ham who’ve struggled to live up to the expectations many had of them following a positive campaign that ended with them in seventh place.
Slaven Bilic’s side have found this season much tougher but with Noble rallying his team mates as well as underlining his commitment to the club, there could be a much more positive end to the campaign.
