Lukasz Fabianski: West Ham goalkeeper confirms talks over contract extension under way | Football News

Lukasz Fabianski is in talks with West Ham over a new contract at the London Stadium.

The 36-year-old goalkeeper’s current deal expires at the end of the season but he expects to agree a one-year extension.

“As far as I can tell, there have been some preliminary talks already going on,” Fabianski told Polish media outlet Meczyki.

“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.

“It’s not only West Ham’s policy that footballers of a certain age extend from season to season. It’s actually a logical solution for many reasons. It is a kind of risk minimisation.

“Of course, the most important thing in all this is health and sports level. If I can manage these aspects, I have no problem with extending the contract.

“The Premier League is the top of a footballer’s dream. I feel good enough to play a little more here.

“I will judge that step by step, but looking at Artur Boruc or many other goalkeepers, you can successfully play up until 40.”
