West Ham United youngster George Moncur is looking forward to the prospect of following in his father's footsteps after putting pen-to-paper on a new two-year deal, with the option for a third, at the Boleyn Ground.

Moncur's dad John played 205 games in a nine-year spell with the Hammers after making the move to E13 from Swindon Town.

Now 19-year-old George is delighted to be taking his first steps along the same road by earning the chance to impress at West Ham.

He made his first team debut earlier this season in the Hammers' victory over Crewe Alexandra in the Capital One Cup, and after progressing well with the Development Squad this year, has his sights set on more involvement at that level.

"I'm over the moon to have signed my new contract," he said. "It's great to play at this football club, so to sign for another two years is really great for me and my development.

"Hopefully it'll continue to go as well as it has done so far. They've put their faith in me and I want to repay them by producing good performances out on the pitch.

"If I keep on doing what I'm doing then hopefully a first team chance will come. Obviously my old man played here for quite a while, so it would be nice to follow in his footsteps and make that progression to the first team."
