midfielder Robert Snodgrass has agreed to sign a new with the club, according to journalist Dean Jones.

The Football Insider for Bleacher Report revealed the news on his personal Twitter account, claiming that the 31-year-old is ready to commit himself to the London Stadium side.

This is good news for the Hammers, as long as it’s not a significantly longer deal. Obviously Snodgrass is into his thirties now, and that’s traditionally the age when outfield players start to decline. However, if this is a one or two year extension then that is exactly what the doctor ordered for West Ham. Snodgrass isn’t the most spectacular player, but he is a solid contributor and was pretty consistent for manager Manuel Pellegrini last time out. The Chilean appears to have resurrected the Scot’s career in , after he was shipped out on loan to for the previous season. The former Hull man is an incredibly hard worker with a wonderful left foot, and you need players like that in the squad. Also, his set piece prowess makes him a vital member of Pellegrini’s team. He’s not the future of the club, but he remains a big part of the present, and so it’s great news that he’s staying where he is for the foreseeable future.
