West Ham United midfielder Manuel Lanzini has signed a new contract at the club, the Hammers have confirmed.
The Argentina international has been with the Hammers since 2015, making a total of 112 appearances for the club.
In that time, he has scored 21 goals and registered 19 assists.
He has played in the first three encounters of the season, registering assists against Brighton & Hove Albion and Watford.
And he has now committed to a new deal that ties him to the club for another four years.
West Ham are finally getting their ducks in a row.
Lanzini is a key member of their first-team squad and has been vitally important to the team that Manuel Pellegrini is building in east London.
A remarkable dribbler with the ability to unlock a defence and score as well, he had to write off nearly the entirety of the 2018/19 campaign due to injury.
