​Antonio snubs Chelsea interest, re-signs with West Ham

West Ham have re-signed Michail Antonio for another four years.

The 27-year old had a been a target of Chelsea, but the Hammers have made a statement of intent to their rivals by signing the Englishman on a £60,000-a-week deal.

Antonio, who can play almost anywhere on the pitch, has scored 9 goals in 29 Premier League matches for the Irons this season.

Speaking to the club's website today, Antonio said: "I am over the moon, I have loved my time here and I am just happy that we have managed to get things sorted so I can move onto next season and do what I have done this season.

"I am delighted to have signed a new four-year deal. I would like to thank the chairman (David Sullivan) because we had a nice little deal for this to get sorted."
