Aaron Cresswell has penned a new deal with West Ham until the summer of 2023, as confirmed via the club’s official website, and some Hammers fans took to Twitter in reaction to the news.
The 29-year-old joined the Hammers from Ipswich Town in the summer of 2014, for a fee believed to be worth £3.75m, according to the Sun.
And Cresswell has proven to be a great servant for West Ham.
The left-back has made 184 appearances in all competitions for the Hammers. And he has racked up seven goals and 19 assists in the process.
Cresswell actually began this season in poor form. And he was dropped after West Ham were hammered 5-0 by Manchester City on the opening day.
He has proved that he has the fight to get back in the team, however. He returned to Manuel Pellegrini’s starting XI for the Hammers’ clash with Manchester United.
And the Liverpool-born ace has been in fine form over the past few games. He seems to be well-deserving of his new contract, and some West Ham fans took to Twitter in reaction to the news that the left-back has penned a new deal with the club…
Congratulations on the new contract Aaron! Feel free to bang a few more free kicks into the top corner! 👍⚽️😁

Go on, lad! Wonder how many of the fans slating him in the lead up to the United game will wish him luck and say they’re behind him.

Okay, so he plays 5 good games every 2 years and he deserves a new contract? Piss off. This club has no ambition
