West Ham United's young Hungarian goalkeeper Krisztian Hegyi has signed a new contract, tying him to the club until 2025.

An Under 21 international, Hegyi has established a regular spot in Mark Robson's Under 23's this season and has been rewarded for his good form this season with a brand new deal.

“I’m very happy to sign a new deal and I can’t wait to continue my journey here," he told West Ham's website. "I shared the news with my family and they were very happy. My Mum and Dad were buzzing for me and the rest of the family as well.

“I’m really thankful for my coaches as well because they always push me and I’m happy to continue to my work with them. I think this is a big moment, another step. I can’t wait to continue my career with West Ham."

One of several young 'keepers on West Ham's books currently, Hegyi is current several steps away from a first team spot with senior stoppers Lukas Fabianski, Alphonse Areola, Darren Randolph and David Martin already above him in the peckin gorder.

Meanwhile Nathan Trott - currently on loan in France with Nancy, Ghanaian 21-year-old Joseph Anang, who was recently recalled from a season-long loan spell at Stevenage, and 20-year-old Scot Brian Kinnear complete a strong line-up of 'keepers at the club presently.
