West Ham United have announced that midfielder Grady Diangana has signed a new long-term contract to stay with the club until 2025.

Diangana joined the Hammers at ten years of age and has now become the second Academy graduate to sign a long-term deal after Declan Rice committed his future to the club last month.

The 20-year-old made his senior debut for West Ham in September and has racked up 15 first team appearances since then.

“I am very excited to know that my future is here for the next six years. I’m really excited to show the world and the fans at London Stadium what I can do,” Diangana told the club’s website.

“It’s a challenge. I want to prove to everyone what I can do. I want to show everyone what I can do and why I deserve to be here.

“I’m very grateful to everyone in the Academy. To every manager and all my team-mates that I’ve played with since I’ve been here.

“It’s really a journey because you get the highs and you get some lows, but all in all it makes you become a better player and a better person.”
