No further options or contract extensions will made to any players until after the end of the season which could be as late at 7th if we qualify for the Europa Conference Final in Prague.

A number of players whose contracts expire this summer are set to have their options activated or short term extensions

The club are likely to exercise a two year option on right back Vladimir Coufal extending him to the end of the 2025/2026 season if we retain out Premier League status.

Manuel Lanzini is in the same position but whether the club exercises a two year extension remains to be seen and could depend who the manager is next season.

The Hammers also have a one year option  on keeper Lukasz Fabianski which is also likely to be activated with the player still in fine form at the age of 38 years of age.

Angelo Ogbonna is highly likely to be offered a short term contract if he remains fit, the 34-year-old Hammer has shown he can still be a valuable squad player when called upon.

Aaron Cresswell has already been offered a short term 12 month contract at the end of this season. the left back turns 34 late this year and could get a ten year testimonial if he agrees a new short term contract with the Hammers.
