Full-back Aaron Cresswell has pledged his future to West Ham after putting pen to paper on a new five-year contract.

The former Tranmere defender signed up with the Irons until 2020, with the option of a further two years.

Cresswell was signed from Championship club Ipswich Town in 2014, and has since established himself as one of the first names on the Hammers’ teamsheet.

“It’s exciting times for me to pen a new deal at West Ham,” said the 25-year-old.

“Hopefully a few more faces will come in and we’ll have a good year.”

The club hasn’t stood still in the transfer market this summer, having already signed up Dimitri Payet from Marseille and Republic of Ireland goalkeeper Darren Randolph.

Another new signing, Spanish midfielder Pedro Obiang, was busy on social media after his first pre-season training session.

Paying tribute to teammate and fellow Spaniard Adrian, he tweeted: “After my first training session with @AdriSanMiguel. Happy to meet my new teammates! Thanks for the welcome.”
