West Ham fans react as Arthur Masuaku signs a new contract until 2024

The defender has committed his long-term future to the Hammers.

West Ham United have confirmed on their official website that DR Congo international Arthur Masuaku has signed a new contract at the club.

Masuaku has committed his future until 2024 and will once more battle Aaron Cresswell to be the Hammers’ first-choice left back this season.

He 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 giving my all for this club I love.

“It hasn’t been an easy road for me since I first arrived but I have always been positive and the future is bright for West Ham, I am very excited, and happy to be a part of things here. The manager has been very good to me and I hope now I can repay his faith.”

But Masuaku is not the most popular player among the West Ham fanbase, because he is prone to lapses in concentration and can be something of a liability at left back.

Often, a player signing a new deal can create excitement but many Hammers on Twitter are not best pleased to see Masuaku tied to their club for another five years.

There’s a feeling he’s a winger by trade but with the quality Manuel Pellegrini can boast on the flanks, he’s unlikely to get into the side there so the Irons are best served hoping he can up his game in 2019/20…
