West Ham United defender Arthur Masuaku has signed a contract extension with the club until 2024.

The deal also includes an option for the left-back’s contract to be extended by a further two years.

Since arriving from Greek Super League side Olympiacos in 2016, Masuaku has gone on to make 75 appearances across his three campaigns with the Hammers.

He returned to action in Saturday’s friendly win over Fulham having represented the Democratic Republic of Congo at this summer’s African Cup of Nations tournament.

Speaking to the club’s website, Masuaku said: “I am very happy and very proud. For me it was an easy decision. The club wanted me to stay and so I didn’t even need to think about it – it was just a matter of time. Now I am looking forward to the Premier League season and giving my all for this club I love.

“It hasn’t been an easy road for me since I first arrived at the club but I have always been positive and I hope and I think that the future is bright for West Ham, and hopefully for me and the team. I am very excited, and happy to be a part of things here."
