As confirmed by the club, West Ham United have tied down star striker Michail Antonio with a new deal until 2023 – with plenty of Irons flocking to this update as they go on to drop their verdicts on the ‘greatest news of all 2020’.
The Englishman’s previous deal looked set to expire at the end of this season, with rumours then emerging over a fresh bumper contract given his contribution under David Moyes.
Who should West Ham tie down next?
GSB then made the move to offer Antonio a new deal, with the club officially announcing that the deal is done – prompting many Irons to flock to this revelation.
The 30-year-old, currently unfit, has been favoured over record signing Sebastien Haller for most of this season when available – and he looks set to battle with the Ivorian over the foreseeable future.
Here’s what Irons had to say regarding this huge development.
