GO'N to sign new deal

Gary O'Neil is poised to sign an extended contract with West Ham according to reports this afternoon.

The 30-year-old midfielder looked set to part company with the club at the end of this month upon the culmination of his existing contract, as a result of the two parties failing to agree terms on a new deal.

But reports emanating this afternoon suggest that the former Middlesbrough player is ready to extend his stay in east London having accepted West Ham's most recent contract offer.

O'Neil was signed by former manager Avram Grant in January 2011 for a paltry 1.5million, since when he has gone on to make 55 appearances (including 15 from the bench) for West Ham.

He has scored three goals during that period - against Blackpool and Peterborough in the Championship and the Goal of the Season contender at home to West Brom back in March.
