​Antonio pledges his future to West Ham with new contract

West Ham have announced that winger Michail Antonio has signed a new contract which will keep him at the club until 2020.

The 26-year-old hopes to play an even bigger role when the Hammers move into the new Stadium.

Antonio told the clubs official website: "I am delighted to have signed a new contract. I am happy that the manager and the chairman have showed their belief in me to give me a new deal.

"I have always believed in my own ability and when I am given the opportunity I will take it and hopefully I have showed that.

"I had to be patient when I first arrived, but once I got the chance I never looked back and hopefully I can now push on and do even better than what I did last season."
