Cresswell pens one-year extension

West Ham full-back Aaron Cresswell has committed his long-term future to the London club after penning a one-year contract extension on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old's previous deal was set to expire in 2020, but he is now contracted to the Hammers until the off-season of 2021.

The news of Cresswell's contract extension follows hot on the heels of Michail Antonio signing a new deal on Monday.

"It's great news for me," Cresswell told West Ham TV. "I've been here for two years now and I'm looking forward to the next five seasons now that I've signed.

"Last season, especially with it being the last season at the Boleyn Ground, was pretty special, with the Manchester United game one which will live with me forever.

"This season, we're all looking forward to the new stadium that's up and running now, the first game with Juventus, which is obviously going to be a fantastic day, and the season ahead."

Cresswell made 44 appearances in all competitions last season, providing four assists and two goals in the Premier League.
