Ex-Academy member Jordan Spence has committed his future to West Ham by signing a new three-year contract.

As revealed on a fortnight ago, the 21-year-old full back - who made his full debut in the 3-0 home defeat to Sunderland on the final day of last season - has agreed to extend his stay in east London having won assurances regarding first team opportunities.

Speaking with, Spence said: "It feels good to be back. I was delighted the club wanted to tie me down for a longer period of time. It's cool to get it all sorted and I am looking forward to some good years ahead hopefully."

Despite having been at the club since the age of 14 the Woodford-born youngster has failed to make the breakthrough to the first team on a regular basis, having made just one additional appearance to his inclusion against Sunderland.

But with West Ham now in the Championship, Spence - who enjoyed a productive spell in the Championship on loan at Bristol City last season - finally appears to have been granted the opportunity of showing what he can offer.
