New deal for Demel

Full-back Guy Demel has signed a new contract with West Ham United.

The 31-year-old former Hamburg SV defender intially signed a two-year contract with an option for a further year in August 2011.

And West Ham confirmed this morning that they have opted to enforce that option which means the French-born former Ivorian international will now remain at the club until the summer of 2014.

Speaking to westham.tv, Demel said: "It's really good for me and I'm really happy to have a new deal with West Ham. I've had a good year this season, and even last year was good, despite the fact that I was injured for so long and struggled a bit.

"I'm happy to be at West Ham and in the team. The lads are really good with me as are the people working for the club. I hope I will stay that long to play in the new stadium as well.

"Last year was kind of difficult because when I signed, I had pre-season, and then unfortunately I got injured really quickly and it was hard to come back afterwards. But right now I feel good.

"I had a pre-season, we worked hard and I have to thank the medical staff for the job they have done with me. I'm quite happy with what I'm doing right now, but I know that I can do even more."

News of Demel's extended contract comes hot on the heels of fellow right-back Joey O'Brien's decision to sign an new deal with the club last week.
