West Ham United are looking to secure the future of a key-player this summer and will offer their crucial asset fresh terms on a new deal.
The Sun states New Zealand international Winston Reid will be amongst a number of first-team stars to be handed fresh contracts this summer, as the Hammers look to fend-off the interest of their Premier League rivals.
28-year-old Reid has been an ever-present figure at the heart of West Ham’s defence this season, starting 26 of the Hammers 30 Premier League games this term.
The experienced defender, who has accumulated 173 Premier League appearances over the past seven years with the Hammers, will see his deal at the club raise to £70k-a-week.
Crucially, the Hammers are also set to raise his release-clause to £20m as they’re determined not to see Premier League rivals swoop for a bargain deal this summer.
Reid was part of the West Ham side that won the Play-Off final in 2012 to earn promotion back to the Premier League and won the club’s Hammer of the Year the following season.
At international level, Reid captains New Zealand and featured for the All Whites at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
