Lukasz Fabianski has been prolific for West Ham under David Moyes in the Premier League
Fabianksi, 36, has proved invaluable between the posts for West Ham during the past three seasons and made a huge contribution towards the club’s push for the top four.
Moyes currently has Fabianski and reserve Alphonse Areola on loan from Euro giants Paris Saint-Germain guarding his net.
West Ham are keen on tying up a summer deal for West Brom’s highly-rated keeper Sam Johnstone.
But news that experienced Fabianski will be staying on for at least one more year will be a huge boost for the fans.
Moyes’ long-term plan is for Fabianski to stay put and help with the transition of Johnstone into a future first choice.
West Ham are looking for defensive cover in the January transfer market but are also using this moment to tie down a number of senior players on new deals.
