West Ham United supporters were treated to the news of their experienced midfielder Tomas Soucek extending his contract. The 28-year-old has been an important part of the club’s setup over the years and has helped the Hammers reach incredible heights in this period. After joining the team initially on loan from SK Slavia Prague in January 2020, Soucek did not take long to convince the club and their supporters of his abilities. His loan was made permanent that summer.

Tomas Soucek helped West Ham United perform brilliantly both in domestic and European competitions during this period. He was also an important part of the side that won the UEFA Europa Conference League title last season. His reward is a new contract with the club until June 2027. “I am very happy to have signed this new contract and very proud that I can continue my career here,” he was quoted as saying on the club’s website.

Why did Tomas Soucek extend his contract?

The midfielder added: “It has been four years since I joined West Ham United and I have enjoyed every moment. Coming to England was a new experience for me and we have been successful in the time that I have been here. We have won a trophy, had good results in the Premier League, and I am happy with myself, that I have played nearly every minute, and I feel that the fans appreciate me here. This was a big part of the reason that I wanted to extend my contract with West Ham, because I feel that this is my home now, and I want to achieve even more in the future with this great Club.”

Soucek has played a key role in helping West Ham achieve their targets over the years. Be it fighting for a trophy or surviving relegation, the midfielder has always been a player his manager can count on. Hence, it is not a surprise to see David Moyes being pleased with Soucek extending his stay at the club. “We are all pleased that Tomáš has signed a new contract. He has been a fantastic servant for West Ham United in his four years at the Club so far,” the manager started.

He added: “Tomáš did a magnificent job to help us avoid relegation when he first arrived here in 2020, and since then he has played a major part in the progress we have made and the success we have enjoyed. He is a model professional, gives absolutely everything for his team every time he steps on the pitch, and is a hugely popular character, loved by the players, staff and everyone at the Club. We look forward to continuing to work with Tomáš and wish him more success in his future career with West Ham United.”
