Conor Coventry signed a new three-and-a-half year deal with West Ham yesterday, as confirmed by the club’s official website, and some Hammers fans took to Twitter in reaction to the news.
The 19-year-old midfielder is a real talent, and is very highly rated at the London Stadium.
Coventry has made 14 appearances for the club’s developmental side this season, and he has really impressed.
He is clearly one for the future, and West Ham boss David Moyes must be delighted that he has been tied down to a new long-term contract.
According to Football Insider, Celtic actually offered the Hammers youngster a contract before he penned a new deal with the east London outfit. So he was clearly in high demand.
With West Ham currently really lacking in the middle of the park, Coventry should have the chance over the next few months to make a name for himself with the first-team squad.
Some Hammers fans took to Twitter and rejoiced at the news that the 19-year-old has penned a new long-term deal with the club…

Long over due. How long were the club pinching pennies over this? Whilst at the same time giving some players 70k plus per week

Good news. But I wanna see him in the first team! No point signing him up to keep loaning him out.
