West Ham United defender Winston Reid has committed his long term future to the club by signing a contract extension until the summer of 2015.

The New Zealand International Captain has been an ever present for the Premier League side this season making 33 appearances, and has featured regularly since his move from Denmark in the summer of 2010 from FC Midtjyland for an undisclosed fee.

The centre back only had a year left on his current deal at Upton Park, and the opportunity of playing in the Olympic Stadium in 2016 appeared to be a big incentive for the player:

“It is an exciting time for the club,” he added.

“The fans have a chance to give their opinions and ideas this week with the consultation which is really important.

“They are the ones who back us week after week and I am sure, even though it is three years down the road, they are already looking forward to seeing what can be done when we move there.” Reid told Sky Sports News.
