West Ham full-back Aaron Cresswell has signed a one-year contract extension, it has been announced.

The 34-year-old has put pen to paper on a deal that will see him move into an eleventh season at West Ham after the decision was made to keep hold if him by new boss Julen Lopetegui.

“Ten years is a long time, and I’ve loved every minute of it here,” Cresswell told West Ham TV.

“I’m delighted that I’m going to be here for at least another season. Me and my family are very happy down here. My son and daughter were both born here – my boy at Queen’s Hospital down the road in Romford – and he is West Ham mad.

“I think there are similarities between east London and Liverpool, in terms of the environment of hard work, commitment and giving everything you’ve got, and I like to think I’ve shown that during my time here.

“Every time I put the jersey on it means a lot to represent the Club. This year has been a bit of a change in role – I haven’t played as much, but I’ve been in football a long time to understand that there is a bigger picture than just playing every week.

‘I’d like to think I’ve done that well when not playing, supporting the team and the lads.

“Of course, I still want to play and I wouldn’t have signed the contract if I didn’t think I was fit enough and healthy enough to still do a good job for the team.

‘I’ve been fortunate with injuries in my career and I’ve always tried to do the right things off the pitch, by eating and sleeping well, training hard every day and trying to keep the standards high.”
