Winston Reid: I want to win trophies with the Hammers

The defender recently committed his future to the club.

West Ham United defender Winston Reid admits he penned a new deal at the club to help them win silverware.

The New Zealand international was tipped to leave the Hammers in the coming summer, as his contract would have been expired. However, the Kiwi centre back recently signed a new six-and-a-half year contract and Upton Park.

Reid reportedly turned down moves to West Ham’s London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal, as well as rejecting a potential move to fellow Premier League team Liverpool.

‘an achievement I really believe is possible’

When asked about why he secured is future in East London, he said: “I wouldn’t have signed a new contract if I didn’t think we could achieve something. To win something and get into that upper tier would be an achievement I really believe is possible.”

The 26-year old joined the Irons from Danish Superliga side FC Midtylland back in 2010. He has since made well over 100 appearances for West Ham and has been given the captaincy by manager Sam Allardyce.

Reid has made 31 appearances in all competitions so far this season, scoring just the once. His only goal came in the 3-1 victory at home to Liverpool last September.
