West Ham starlet Sears signs long-term deal

West Ham young gun Freddie Sears has signed a five-year deal with the club.

The England U19 international becomes the third Hammer to commit to the club until 2013, taking after Dean Ashton and Carlton Cole.

"I am obviously delighted to have signed for another five years with West Ham," Sears told the club's official website.

"I am looking forward to concentrating on football now and getting ready for the next game that is coming up.

"It's nice to know the club wants you here, for that long as well. I am enjoying my football and all that I have been doing and hopefully I can now show there is more to come.

"Obviously I am learning every day, I am 19 tomorrow (Thursday) and just trying to get better all the time and see how far I can go."
