Boa Morte offered new deal by West Ham

West Ham winger Luis Boa Morte has been offered a new contract but the Hammers are releasing strikers Ilan and Mido. Portugal international Boa Morte, 32, returned in April from nine months out with a serious knee injury.

Boa Morte told the club's official website:"I am delighted to sign the contract and can't wait to get started.

"The new manager Avram Grant is going to play an attacking style and I hope to get involved in that.

"I am very happy to be at West Ham and look forward to scoring more goals and doing everything I can for the team.

"To be honest, I did have more options and more offers from other people, but I wanted to stay here.

"When the season finished, a few clubs came to me about signing for them, but West Ham believed in me and things are looking positive here."
