Goalkeeper Robert Green is currently considering signing a new contract with West Ham.
According to reports, the club have offered the England goalkeeper - whose current contract expires at the end of the 2011/12 season - a new four-year deal that would effectively tie him to West Ham for the rest of his career.
The 31-year-old was signed by Alan Pardew in August 2006 from Norwich City for £1.5million, since when he has notched up almost 180 appearances for the club, barely missing a game in the process.
In 2008 he slammed the club after his request for a new contract was denied. Speaking at the time, Green said: "No matter what the figures are in the workplace in terms of wages, you either feel a valued member of your staff or you don't.
"At the moment, I don't and clearly West Ham don't care about me. Other guys are getting rewarded but I'm not. I would just like some parity."

''This is the most promising bit of news I have heard recently and that one mistake for England could well become as important to us as Di Canio pushing over the ref (we would never have been able to afford to sign him had that not happened). Rob Green is the only person bar Scott Parker who came out of last season with ANY credit. He could also make the difference between a swift return and a grim few years in this division(or worse) Make it so, number one.''
