Anton and on

Filed: Friday, 6th January 2006

Anton Ferdinand has signed a contract extension that will keep him at the Boleyn until 2010.

The 20-year-old centre-half put pen to paper today on a deal that extends his current contract by a further two years.

The new deal is seen as a reward for Ferdinand's breakthrough to the first team, and is thought to come with a healthy wage rise.

Hammers boss Alan Pardew, talking on the club's website said:

"I'm overjoyed that we have signed another of our top young players on a long-term contract.

"Anton fully deserves the new deal. He has made fantastic progress since I came to the club and I want him to be a big player for us for years to come.

"We now have all of our young players secured on long-term deals and that stability is paramount to the success we want to achieve at this club in the future."

Ferdinand's new contract comes just 18 months after he signed his last deal.
