Three years ago today, Aaron Cresswell became a Hammer after he signed from Ipswich Town in a deal worth £3.75 million.
In his three seasons with the Hammers, the now 27-year-old has made 118 appearances and scored 4 times. Such have been his displays, Cresswell earned his first England call-up in November last year, making his debut for the Three Lions in a thrilling 2-2 draw with Spain at Wembley. He recently earned his second cap for his country in England’s narrow 3-2 defeat to France last month.
A hit with the fans and players – being named both the Player’s Player of the Year AND Hammer of the Year in his debut season for the club – Cresswell has established himself as an important member of Slaven Bilic’s squad.
Out through injury for the first few months of last season, the Englishman had his worst season in terms of game time for the Hammers in 16/17, however he will be certainly looking ahead to the new campaign as a fresh start.
“Pre-season is part and parcel of football and I’m looking forward to getting back and putting in the hard work to give myself a platform for the new Premier League season.” said Cresswell on whufc.com.
