O’neil Ham­mers out a new of­fer

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

MID­FIELDER Gary O’Neil has signed a con­tract ex­ten­sion to stay at West Ham.

The 30-year-old was out of con­tract, but af­ter play­ing 27 games for the Ham­mers last sea­son, man­ager Sam Al­lardyce has rewarded the for­mer Portsmouth and Mid­dles­brough man with a new deal.

And O’Neil ad­mit­ted dis­cus­sions did drag on a bit longer than ex­pected.

“Ev­ery­thing’s been agreed,” O’Neil said.

“I didn’t need a med­i­cal, ob­vi­ously they know me quite well. All the terms are agreed and ev­ery­one’s happy. It took a lit­tle while. With ev­ery­one be­ing on hol­i­day stuff drags out, but we got there in the end.”
