West Ham United's longest-serving player Mark Noble has signed a new three-year contract, with the option of a further two years.
The 25-year-old midfielder, who was named "Hammer Of The Year" last season as the club won promotion back to the Barclays Premier League, joined the club as a schoolboy, making his senior debut in 2004.
After loan spells at Hull City and Ipswich Town, Noble established himself in the first team under Alan Curbishley in 2006/07.
"Everyone knows I love playing at West Ham"
He has made a total of 224 appearances for West Ham, scoring 26 goals, and has played in every match so far this season.
"I'm over the moon now it's all agreed and done," Noble told the club's website. "It was just a matter of getting things right for me and my family. Everyone knows I love playing at West Ham and I enjoy my football here so it was just a case of coming to an agreement.
"I feel like I've grown a lot as a player since my debut and I'm still only 25. Playing for West Ham has been a rollercoaster and I've been through two promotions, a relegation and a 'Great Escape', but it's been thoroughly enjoyable and I look forward to the next few years of my career here."
