West Ham centre back Winston Reid is set to sign a new long term deal at the East End club when this season comes to an end.

The New Zealand international has arguably been the Hammers’ best player this season and Sam Allardyce is understandably keen to hold onto him.

Reid has become a fans favourite amongst the Upton Park faithful; partly due a winning goal against Millwall last year; and has formed a solid partnership with James Collins at the back this season.

With West Ham slowly slipping down the table after a few bad results, rumours circulated that clubs may take a punt on Reid in January.

The likes of Reid and Mo Diame have attracted attention after West Ham’s solid start, but it seems the unity amongst the squad is strong.

Reid has revealed that he is in contract talks with the club and is more than happy at the Hammers.

“We are talking,” Reid told the Daily Star.

“There’s an option in there for both parties to take another two years at the end of the season.

“I’ve always wanted to stay here. I enjoy being here.”
