The Insider has exclusive news on two big name players agreeing new contracts with the Club

I can exclusively reveal that the Club are to announce that two of the biggest names in the first-team squad are set to sign new contracts.

Slaven Bilic is keen for his best players to pledge their long-term futures to the Club and will be delighted that they have managed to secure the signatures of two big name players.

Dimitri Payet, Adrian and Cheikhou Kouyate have already secured long-term deals and these are exciting times for the Hammers ahead of the historic move into the new Stadium.

The West Ham United players are gearing up for their first pre-season friendly against Seattle Sounders on Tuesday night and preparations are well and truly underway.

Sofiane Feghouli and Havard Nordtveit are part of the squad that have travelled to America and Bilic will be using the time to build relationships with his new signings.

The hard work is also continuing back in the UK to add more new players to the squad and it is my understanding that there could be another major new signing by the end of the week.
