Tomas Soucek contract: Czech international signs four-year deal with The Hammers

Tomas Soucek, a midfielder for West Ham United, has reportedly agreed to a new long-term contract with the Hammers as per The Athletic.

The Czech Republic international has reportedly signed a new four-year deal, keeping him at the London Stadium until 2027.

The news of Soucek’s long-term contract will be welcome news for West Ham boss David Moyes, since his previous contract was slated to end next summer.

In January 2020, the 28-year-old made a temporary loan to the Hammers before making a permanent transfer for €16 million.

He has made 156 appearances for West Ham over the past three and a half years, though, demonstrating that they got good value for their money when they signed him.

In that time, Soucek has also provided 22 goals and 9 assists, showcasing his ability to score from the middle of the field.

The international from Czechia, who can play a variety of midfield positions, has earned a spot in the Hammers starting lineup.

After missing just two Premier League games all season, he was practically a constant for Moyes’ team.

He played in 50 games across all competitions, scoring three goals and dishing out six assists to help West Ham win the Europa Conference League.

In the opening game of the 2023–24 season, West Ham’s 1–1 draw with Bournemouth, Soucek played 90 minutes as a defensive midfielder.

But in the upcoming London derby against Chelsea, he might anchor the midfield alongside Edson Alvarez and James Ward-Prowse.

The sole additions to Moyes’ squad this summer are Alvarez and Ward-Prowse, as the Hammers attempt to fill Declan Rice’s absence.
