West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini says Mark Noble deserved his new contract and his extension is a positive for the club. Noble, who has never been capped at senior level for England, inked a new deal on Wednesday that will keep him at the club until the end of the 2021 campaign.
The 31-year-old made his debut for the Hammers in 2004 and, barring loan spells at Hull City and Ipswich Town, he has spent his entire professional career with the east London outfit.
Speaking about the midfielder’s new deal at a press conference on Thursday, Pellegrini said: “I think his new contract is very positive for him and for the club. Mark has made a big career here and I think he deserves the chance to finish his career here, too. “He knows about this club.
In the dressing room, I think it’s important for new players who arrive to have him. He is a very important player for West Ham and he demonstrates that every game for me.”
Noble is expected to retain his starting place for Saturday’s Premier League clash against Fulham at Craven Cottage.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
