West Ham centre-back Kurt Zouma looks set to be offered a new contract at the London Stadium, according to a new update regarding his future.
The 28-year-old has proven to be an excellent signing since joining the Hammers from Chelsea back in 2021, playing a big role in the team’s success under David Moyes.
Last season, Zouma tasted UEFA Europa Conference League glory with West Ham, following their memorable final win over Fiorentina in the final, performing expertly throughout the campaign and starting 24 Premier League games.
In 2023/24 to date, the Frenchman has started all eight of his team’s league matches, forging a strong centre-back partnership with Nayef Aguerd.
“West Ham are planning contract talks with Kurt Zouma over a new deal at the London Stadium, TEAMtalk understands.
“Zouma is in the final 18 months of his contract at West Ham with his deal due to expire in 2025 following his arrival from Chelsea in the summer of 2021.”
This makes complete sense for West Ham, with Zouma someone who is performing at the peak of his powers, with Moyes clearly valuing him greatly after making him the Hammers’ captain this season.
At 28, there is no reason why the defender can’t remain at his best for another four or five years, continuing to be a vital part of this impressive team’s journey.
