West Ham United defender Aaron Cresswell has signed a new one-year contract with the club.

The 34-year-old Scouser joined the club from Ipswich Town in July 2014 and has since made 349 appearances in all competitions for the east Londoners.

Speaking to, he said: “This club means a lot to me and I’ll continue to make the most of every opportunity I’m given.

“We’ve built on our foundations in the past three or four years, and we’re in a good place now. Normally when there’s a change in management you’re starting at a low point, but we’re looking up, and we want to keep progressing.

“As a senior player, I hope I can assist the transition of the new head coach coming in, and help pull everyone in the same direction to ensure we continue building and heading towards where we want to be.”

Meanwhile, the Hammers have confirmed that defender Angelo Ogbonna and goalkeeper Joseph Anang have left the club. West Ham remains in communication with Ben Johnson and Divin Mubama regarding potential new contracts.
