West Ham Super Fans thrilled by Lukasz Fabianski contract update
This is part of a regular series from our panel of West Ham Super Fans. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around the London Stadium. You can join in the discussion on our West Ham Zone Facebook page.
Lukasz Fabianski is set to stay on at West Ham for another year, according to a recent report by Claret and Hugh.
It’s believed that he could stay on as the first-choice keeper or battle with whoever David Moyes has above him in the pecking order for a starting berth.
Recently, the former Poland international himself spoke positively to the Polish media about signing a new deal at the club.
He said: “As far as I can tell, there have been some preliminary talks already going on. I hope that we will calmly come to a good solution for both sides.
“I do not see any reasons for it to be otherwise, since the club and I are satisfied with this cooperation.”
This was greeted by an air of positivity by the Hammers faithful and they’re delighted to see him staying at the club.
He’s been a reliable custodian for Moyes since his time at the club and took to Facebook to share their thoughts.
Here’s what they said:
While there could be many reasons for him staying on at the club, it’s a good thing that he’s extending, even if it is only for a year.
Fabianksi has been loyal to the cause and has merited all the trust that Moyes has shown in him so far.
Even after signing Alphonse Areola on loan, the boss has still stuck with Fabianski as his first choice.
Maybe next season will see a change of guard and it’s nice to have a presence like the Pole inside the dressing room.
He’s already 36 so is not a long-term option and he could move into a coaching role along with being a fringe player.
It remains to be seen what Moyes’ plans are for Fabianksi in the future.
