Noble talks continue

Sam Allardyce has confirmed that the club are still to reach a compromise with midfielder Mark Noble over a new contract.

The club's longest-serving player, a died-in-the-wool Hammers fan himself is out of contract at the end of the current season having failed to reach agreement with the club over new terms.

However Allardyce confirmed that the two parties are still in negotiations. Talks have been on-going since the end of last season and I would have thought they would continue until a conclusion is reached," he said. "Hopefully that conclusion will see him sign a new deal.

"Mark is Mark. He comes in every day and works hard and he is as happy as any player. Every player at the club is in a good, positive frame of mind at the moment, so there is no hangover from him not renewing his current deal."

Noble, who signed professional terms with West Ham some nine years ago last signed a renewed contract - a three-and-a-half year deal - back in Apri 2009. Negotiations over a new deal are understood to have been taking place for some consdierable time.

Allardyce also confirmed that the club were yet to make a final decision over trainees Anthony Vanden Borre, Mikael Silvestre and John Mensah who have recently spent time at Chadwell Heath.

"They have all been training with us but no decision has been made yet on whether their long-term futures lay with the club," he admitted. "I would have thought a decision would have been made on all three by the end of next week."

''Give him what he wants, the lad is a diamond and despite a few moaners he is a fantastic player. Always driven, look at what we would get in for his money and compare to what we would have to pay to get same sort of player. Learn from selling players like Ginge, Scotty Parker etc.''
