West Ham have some serious work to do over the course of the next 12 months or so, with so many players nearing the end of their current deals.

In fact, there are nine players, as well as Manuel Pellegrini, who are due to be out of contract in the summer of 2021.

So who should the Hammers offer new deals too? And who should they try to move on either in January or next summer?

The winger is currently injured, but he is a hugely important player for West Ham.

His pace and power offers the east London outfit something unique, and they must tie him down to a new deal.

Verdict: Keep

Fabian Balbuena:

The Paraguayan, 28, enjoyed a wonderful debut campaign with the Hammers last season. He seems to have regressed this term, however. Balbuena is still a very useful player for West Ham though, and offering him a one or two-year extension would be a wise move.

Verdict: Keep

Jack Wilshere:

The injury prone midfielder has really struggled since joining the Hammers in the summer of 2018.

And it might just be the right time for West Ham to cut their losses.

Verdict: Sell

The 29-year-old left-back struggled at the start of this season, but he has been excellent in the last two games.

He remains a very consistent, dependable member of the Hammers’ squad, and he still has a few years left at the peak of his powers.

Verdict: Keep


Robert Snodgrass:

The Scot has lost his place this season, and with so many quality players in the wide attacking department at the London Stadium, it is hard to envisage a scenario where he forces his way back into the team.

Verdict: Sell

Mark Noble:

The West Ham skipper remains a fan favourite at the London Stadium. The Hammers must keep him around at all costs.

Verdict: Keep

The Pole has arguably been West Ham’s best player over the past 15 months. The 34-year-old is currently out injured and he will be hugely missed. The Hammers must do all they can to extend his current deal.

Verdict: Keep


The Spaniard has hardly played, but when he has, he has looked very shaky indeed. Surely West Ham can do better.

Verdict: Sell

David Martin:

The same can be said for the former Millwall man. Unless he really proves himself, there is no reason why he shouldn’t be moved on.

Verdict: Sell

Manuel Pellegrini:

Arguably the most important name on the list. The Chilean has worked wonders at West Ham, and the club must try and convince him to stay for a further two or three years beyond the summer of 2021.
