New Hammers deal for Noble
West Ham midfielder and former Fulham target Mark Noble has agreed a new deal to extend his stay at Upton Park, according to reports.
Noble is currently in the final year of his contract and a number of clubs are thought to be monitoring his situation.
Fulham made an enquiry about Noble during the summer transfer window only to be rebuffed by the Hammers.
West Ham have now moved to offer Noble a new deal as they look to keep the player who is a product of their famed academy.
Noble has made over 200 appearances for his local club and has established himself as a key member of the side since breaking into the first team at the age of 17.
The classy midfielder helped West Ham win promotion back to the Premier League last season and was named Player of the Season in the process.
Noble is expected to sign a three-year extension with the option of a further year at Upton Park.
News of Noble's new deal will come as a massive boost to Hammers boss Sam Allardyce as the club risked losing the 25-year-old on a free transfer at the end of the season.
