Report: West Ham want veteran to stay put for two more years

West Ham want goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski to remain with the club for another two years, according to reliable Hammers source Claret and Hugh. 

The 35-year-old joined the club during the summer of 2018 and has been a huge success following his arrival from Swansea City. He was quickly installed as number one for the East London club.

Fabianski was the club’s star performer in the 2018/19 season and played a major role in helping West Ham avoid relegation in that campaign. The Pole has established himself as one of the key men in the Hammers squad.

Fabianski was arguably one of the best West Ham buys in recent years, as he cost just £7 million, which is a bargain in today’s market. As he is in brilliant form, David Moyes will not need to look at bringing in a new keeper anytime soon.

They should, however, start identifying younger keepers who can potentially eventually succeed Fabianski as first-choice. Fabianski is not only a key presence for the club on the field, but he is also a leader off it.

Whilst Fabianski may be 35; goalkeepers typically retire later than outfield players. He could potentially continue to serve the club well for another five years.

The report added that players whom the club could allow to be moved on are Robert Snodgrass and Ryan Fredericks.

The 28-year-old Fredericks has struggled to live up to expectations following his arrival from Fulham in 2018. He does not appear to be part of the club’s future plans, and so a parting of ways may be best for both parties.

Whilst Snodgrass did his bit for the club in the last two seasons, he is now past his prime and appears to be surplus to requirements as he has featured just once in the Premier League this season.
