Kevin Nolan is planning on playing out the rest of his career at West Ham, according to MirrorFootball.

The Hammers captain has made a huge impact since arriving from Newcastle United two years ago, scoring 24 goals in 83 league appearances.

And the 31-year-old midfielder is hoping open talks on a contract extension in January as he makes plans to play the rest of his career out at Upton Park.

A source close to Nolan told MirrorFootball: “Kevin would love to stay at the club and make it his last one.

“He likes West Ham and has done well for them.”

But Nolan’s immediate plans are to help West Ham bounce back after their 1-0 home defeat to Stoke City two weeks again, starting with Sunday’s trip to Southampton.

“I can’t remember the last time we played that badly at home,” Nolan said.

“At Upton Park, our form has been brilliant. ­Everyone came off and didn’t know what had happened.

“Now we have got ­Southampton on a ­televised game. They are a good side who have spent a lot of money. It is the best time and the best place to fix it.”
