Promising goalkeeper signs contract extension at Hammers
WEST HAM have confirmed goalkeeper Nathan Trott has signed a contract extension at the club.
The 23-year-old has signed a deal running until 2024, with an option to extend for a further two years.
Bermuda-born Trott spent last season on loan at French Ligue 2 club AS Nancy.
He is now looking forward to continuing his journey with the Hammers.
Trott said: “I think it's something I've always wanted to be a part of and I'm really happy that the Club value me and have invested time in me to hopefully push me in the team in the future.
“I came in at 16 and I'm going on 24 next season, so it's a big part of my life and somewhere that I call home now. It's good for me to be a part of it and it’s like a big family for me. Being here so long just keeps me pushing to want to strive and help the team out, which is the same goal I’ve had since I signed the first day.
“For me, the next step will just be to try and impress as much as I can. We've got Łukasz [Fabianski], Alphonse [Areola] and Darren [Randolph] here as well, so I'm just going to try and push them as much as I can.
“I’m at that age now when I've got a lot more experience and appearances under my belt, so I feel like I'm a lot more mature than I was and I feel like I've gotten everything I need to know. I think the next step for me is to just try and impress as much as I can in the pre-season games and hopefully catch the manager’s eye.
“I try not to think about age too much. I just think, at this time, for goalkeepers it’s a long career and 23/24 is very young for a goalkeeper. For me, I just try and not even think about the age at this point, and just try and show what I can do and my ability and see where it can take me.”
