Zamora signs contract extension

Following his impressive start to the new Premiership campaign, Bobby Zamora has pledged his long-term future to West Ham United by signing a contract extension with the Club.

The 25-year-old striker, who until last week sat at the top of the Premiership scoring charts with five goals in the first seven matches of the campaign, has agreed a new deal that will keep him at Upton Park until 2011.

The lifelong Hammers fan says: "I'm delighted to have extended my contract and I'm now looking forward to spending my long-term future at Upton Park.

"I've been here for almost three years now, and there is really no other place I would rather be. This is my Club and wearing a claret and blue shirt is all I have ever wanted to do.

"Personally, the season has started well for me and, although results haven't been great recently, I'm confident that the team will get back to winning ways soon.

"The spirit among the squad is still excellent and we are all working hard to turn things around. As long as we stay focused and believe in ourselves, I'm sure the results will come soon."
