Dean Ashton Signs Five Year West Ham Deal
Dean Ashton has signed a new five year deal with West Ham. Hopefully this will stem the rumours linking Ashton with other clubs.
Ashton said of his new deal,
"I am delighted. I said all along that I wanted to sign. I feel I have still got a lot to show the football club and the fans. I am really happy that I have signed and now I can look forward to next season.
"It is a fantastic way to end the season for me. It is not going to be on my mind and now with a five-year contract, the future is here. I said I wanted to stay at the end of the season and I am really glad it has been done so professionally and sorted now."
West Ham United Chief Executive Scott Duxbury said,
"I am delighted that we have agreed this new contract with Dean. It underlines the ambition of the club to progress and challenge at the top end of the Premier League. Dean is an important part of our plans for the new season and beyond. We are looking forward to seeing him scoring plenty of goals for West Ham United in the future."
As is custom West Ham did not reveal the details of the deal. However yesterday's Sun speculated that Ashton would be given a deal of £50,000 a week.
