Cape Town - Michail Antonio has agreed a new four-year deal at West Ham after being linked with a move to Premier League leaders Chelsea.

Antonio is currently on the sidelines recovering from the hamstring injury which brought a premature end to his season.

But the 27-year-old has been a key figure for the Hammers during the campaign; netting nine goals and earning a first England call-up.

West Ham’s Player of the Season has now been rewarded with an improved contract at the London Stadium.

"I've loved my time here and I'm happy we have managed to get things sorted," said Antonio.

"This year has been a better year than last year because I've played from start to finish and I managed to get the England call-up I've been dreaming of since I was a child.

"Now it's a case of pushing on and I don't want to drop my standards next season."

The Hammers next face another tough fixture when they welcome Liverpool to the London Stadium after a much-needed win over cross-town rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Kick off is at 15:15.
