The 35-year-old’s deal was due to expire at the end of the season before a one-year extension was confirmed today.
Despite the conjecture around whether Fabianski would indeed be offered an extended stay, a string of impressive performances this season have lead to the hierarchy being convinced the experienced Pole was worthy of a new deal.
There has been speculation linking the Hammers with a move for a goalkeeper, although news of Fabianski’s stay could put pay to any incoming stopper.
Here’s how the east London faithful reacted to the news…
Great news, don’t know why people keep discussing bringing in new GKs when he’s performing perfectly fine

Love Fab and this is a sensible move. We defo need a younger and less injury prone GK though.

Great news. Still a fantastic keeper, as we saw against Leeds on Monday. COYI ⚒

Absolute no brainier. Stability in a position we’ve not had stability in for a long time.
