West Ham to hand Fabianski new deal

Veteran goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski will be handed a new one-year deal at West Ham.

The former Poland international turns 37 this month but is playing as well as ever as the Hammers chase another top-six finish.

Fabianski's form has been so impressive that he has restricted on-loan France keeper Alphonse Areola to appearances in the cup competitions.

"He has been really good," said Hammers boss David Moyes. "I actually think he has been pushed by Alphonse, who has done really well for us in European games and cup games as well.

"I think maybe the age Lukasz is at we have tried to spare him, and I have to say I think Lukasz, touch wood, has been very, very good in the league and performed consistently well.

"He has played really well this year and we will be keeping him next year, of course we will. He might have more competition and he might be a year older, but at the moment he is doing really well."
