West Ham goalkeeper Nathan Trott delighted penning new contract

West Ham goalkeeper Nathan Trott has signed a new deal.

Trott has signed a contract extension until the summer of 2024, with a further two-year option.

Bermuda-born Trott spent last season on loan at French Ligue 2 club AS Nancy.

“It's been very positive vibes since I've been back and, seeing how the team's been performing over the last two or three years, 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," said the 23-year-old to whufc.com.

“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, Alphonse and Darren 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."
