The 36-year-old has been under huge pressure this season after Alphonse Areola arrived from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

As things stand, however, the Pole is yet to be dislodged from David Moyes’s starting XI in the Premier League.

Brought to the London Stadium from Swansea City for £7 million in the summer of 2018 (BBC), Fabianski has gone on to be a terrific signing for West Ham.

His contract runs out in the summer but it seems as though he could yet stay in East London for a little while longer.

Lukasz Fabianski makes big claim about new West Ham contract

The experienced goalkeeper could be set for a contract extension with the Hammers.

Fab told Meczyki how initial discussions regarding a new deal have already begun:

“From what I know, there have been some initial discussions already taking place. I hope that we will come to a good solution for both sides. I do not see any reasons for it to be otherwise, since the club and I are happy with this cooperation.”

Fab then hinted that a new 12-month deal is in the offing:

“That’s right. It’s not just West Ham’s policy that footballers of a certain age extend from season to season. This is actually a logical solution for many reasons. Of course, the most important thing in all this is health and sports level. If I can manage these aspects, I see no problem in extending the contract.”

Fabianski has been in excellent form recently.

So it will be no surprise if he is in fact offered a new contract.

 

Areola will undoubtedly be our new number one goalkeeper sooner rather than later.

Fabianski still has a lot to offer at the very highest level though. And he proved that yet again with an impeccable display against Tottenham on Sunday.
