West Ham United: Darren Randolph signs new four-year deal

West Ham United goalkeeper Darren Randolph has committed his long-term future by signing a new four-year deal keeping him at the Olympic Stadium until 2020.

The Republic of Ireland keeper joined the Hammers from Birmingham last summer and managed to feature in 15 games in all competitions as the club finished seventh in the Premier League table.

“I’ve had a good first year at West Ham and this is another positive thing to happen to me at the end of a good first season and a good summer with Ireland,” he told the club’s official website.

“I spoke to the manager and I know [Adrian and I] both have the opportunity to work towards that No1 position, which was part of the reason I was happy to sign a new contract.

“It is good to know I have the manager’s backing and it certainly helps my confidence to know he believes in what I can do.”

The 29-year-old recently linked with a move to Southampton, after made four appearances at Euro 2016 and helping his team reached the last 16.
