West Ham United star Robert Snodgrass has signed a new deal with the club which will see him remain at the London Stadium until the summer of 2021, the player has confirmed on Twitter.

Sndograss arrived at the Hammers in January 2017 from Hull City. He was less than impressive during his first six months at the club and was subsequently shipped out on loan to Aston Villa, who were at the time in the Championship ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

It was widely believed that Snodgrass was less than effective during his first six months at the Hammers as former manager Slaven Bilic had been playing him out of position.

Many would have thought that his West Ham stay would be a short one at that point. It is very rare that senior players are re-integrated into a club’s first-team after being sent out on loan.

In the case of Sndograss, he however was brought back to the club ahead of last season after Manuel Pellegrini was appointed as manager.

He had a good season as he went on play in 33 Premier League encounters for the East Londoners.

The 31-year-old will be a key player to Pellegrini’s West Ham side next season. He will have a lot to contribute to the club on and off the field.

Snodgrass certainly was deserving of the new deal and the Hammers did the right thing by offering it to him.

“I’m delighted to commit my future to this great club,” said Snodgrass.

“Sometimes you get a chance to play for that one club that’s special, going through that special time, and I believe at this moment that’s West Ham.

“We’re trying our best to keep progressing and moving forward.”

West Ham will be aiming for nothing less than a solid finish on the top half of the standings next season.
