West Ham fans react to shock Michail Antonio new contract claims

West Ham are in talks with Michail Antonio about a new contract according to a report from The Times.

And some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to those claims.

Antonio has been on fire for West Ham so far this season.

He has seven goals and four assists to his name in 10 games in all competitions (Transfermarkt).

Antonio recently signed a new deal with the Hammers that expires in 2023, but that was just an extension on his previous deal (The Times).

And it now seems as though the 31-year-old striker could be set to stay at the London Stadium for the remainder of his career.

Michail Antonio new contract on the way?

The Times suggest that Micky is set to be handed a new deal.

He is currently paid around £70k-a-week and it is claimed that he could be put on a new deal approaching £110k-a-week.

That is allegedly what Andriy Yarmolenko earns so if we release the Ukraine international in the summer, or sell him in January, paying Antonio those kind of wages is a no-brainer.

We should be doing exactly the same with Declan Rice. The 22-year-old and Antonio are our most important players.

David Moyes obviously thinks that as well, having rested the duo against Manchester City in midweek.

Micky is more than deserving of a new deal. He has proven his fitness over the past five months or so as well – something that has been a huge bonus for the Hammers.
