Noble to finish with Hammers

Midfielder Mark Noble expects to end his playing career with West Ham, having seen a 12-month option taken up to extend his stay until the summer of 2021.

The 31-year-old has racked up nearly 450 appearances for the Hammers, having made his debut as a teenager in August 2004, with his only time away from the Irons being loan spells with Hull City and Ipswich Town.

I hope that the club keeps moving in the right way and hopefully I can be a part of that.

And Noble, who has twice helped West Ham regain their Premier League place, is delighted to have agreed an extension which he says will ensure he remains a one-club man.

He told the club's official website: "It was an option in my contract that I signed a few years ago now and it's an extra year, which is fantastic for me and my family.

"I've been at this club all my life, so it takes me to the end of my career. I think we're moving in the right direction, so it was the right time to do it.

"I hope that the club keeps moving in the right way and hopefully I can be a part of that."

Noble has started 11 of the Londoners' 16 Premier League games played so far this season, missing three games as a result of being shown a straight red card in the 1-1 draw at Leicester City in late October.

Next up for Noble and the Hammers is a derby clash with Fulham on Saturday, with the Irons 7/5 to win at Craven Cottage, 11/1 to do so by a 1-0 scoreline and 10/3 to triumph by a one-goal margin.
