West Ham United are expected to confirm a new contract for central defender Winston Reid in the coming weeks, as reported by fichajes.net.
This will deal a blow to Arsenal and Liverpool, who had been hunting the defender in recent months in an attempt to shore up their respective leaky backlines.
The Hammers have had an exceptional start to the new season in the Premier League, with Sam Allardyce leading them to a surprise place in the top four at this early juncture, and Reid is clearly keen to stay with his current side.
As a result, he is expected to sign a new contract that will run until the 30 June 2019, for four years.
Reid will also become one of the highest paid players in West Ham’s side.
While Reid was impressed by the interest from the two Premier League giants, he has instead decided to stay with the east London side.
