West Ham: Tomas Soucek contract talks shelved until the summer

West Ham: Tomas Soucek contract talks shelved until the summer -West Ham News

Influential West Ham midfielder Tomas Soucek won’t discuss a new deal at the London Stadium until the summer, according to a fresh update.

The Lowdown: Soucek a key figure

The Czech Republic international has been a superb signing for Hammers since arriving from Slavia Prague in 2020, proving to be one of David Moyes’ most important players.

Soucek has continued to be a prominent figure for West Ham this year, scoring four goals in 28 Premier League starts and shining alongside Declan Rice in the middle of the park, even if not finding the back of the net as much as last season.

The 27-year-old is out of contract in the summer of 2024 though, so the club are surely desperate to nail down his future in the coming months.

Which striker should West Ham sign in January?

The Latest: No deal until the summer

According to 90min, contract talks have now been put on hold until the end of the season, having reportedly got underway in January initially.

There is no indication that Soucek’s West Ham future is in doubt, although drifting into the final two years of his current deal does feel a little more precarious.

The Verdict: No-brainer for Hammers

Soucek arguably hasn’t been quite as formidable in 2021/22 as he was last season, in terms of his overall impact – he has averaged fractionally fewer tackles per game  – but there is still no denying that is a key part of Moyes’ setup.

At 27, the Czech Republic international is in and around the peak of his powers and should remain that way for the next four or five years, having been hailed as ‘unbelievable’ by friend and colleague Vladimir Coufal.

With Rice’s future up in the air, the idea of losing both him and Soucek in the same transfer window doesn’t bear thinking about and it would be a huge shock if that happened.
