West Ham winger Michail Antonio has signed a new four-year contract with the Premier League club.

The 27-year-old had reportedly been a target for Premier League leaders Chelsea but has now agreed an improved deal with the Hammers.

“I’ve loved my time here and I’m happy we have managed to get things sorted,” said Antonio, who is currently injured.

Antonio, who has scored nine league goals this season, was called up by England for the first time in August.

He was recently named the Hammers’ player of the season, but has not appeared since the start of April after being ruled out with a “significant injury”.
