West Ham put all new contract talks on-hold

West Ham United have put new contract talks with their players on-hold.

Captain Mark Noble and striker Michail Antonio are just two of a number of players out of contract at the end of this season.

Fabian Balbuena, Robert Snodgrass and Lukasz Fabianski will all also need fresh terms if they are to stay at the London Stadium beyond next summer, though there is no impatience from any player to reach an agreement before January.

"We've not been bothered too much with the contracts, we've been trying to get the whole club moving forward," said manager David Moyes.

"We'll get around the players when we think it's the right time. So we're focusing on the team and the games at the moment. There are several players we will need to look to probably going into the new year sometime. We try to avoid it at the moment and we'll look at it once we get in a good strong position."
