According to a report by the Athletic, via West Ham Transfers, GSB and the Irons are ready to offer a new contract to defensive star Angelo Ogbonna following his performances this season – prompting excitement from many West Ham United fans.
Ogbonna, who is currently sidelined through injury, was a mainstay for manager David Moyes again in the centre of defence this season before succumbing to the knock.
Indeed, starting 23 Premier League games, he has seen the likes of Craig Dawson and Fabian Balbuena rotate alongside him while the Italian remained a fixed point in the starting eleven.
Now, as the club reportedly eye a new deal for the 32-year-old, plenty of Irons fans are overjoyed at this update – with one fan calling it ‘excellent news’ whilst others plead with GSB to get it sorted sooner rather than later.

West Ham fans buzz over Ogbonna update
“Fully deserves, I’d like him to retire at West Ham.
Been massively underrated since the day he arrived, and only the last 18 months have the majority of our fans realised he’s class.
The old system with Masuaku left him covering 2 positions after we lose possession high up.”
“Excellent news. Get it done.”
“Get it done”
“Needs to be done quickly, he has been a monster for us”
“Good move great player”
“Well deserved, blokes a unit”
