Lukasz Fabianski has confirmed that talks are ongoing with West Ham over a contract extension. The goalkeeper’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season but a one-year extension is in the pipeline. Fabianski has earned 57 caps for Poland and retired from international football during the last international break. The goalkeeper received a standing ovation and a guard of honour during their 5-0 win over San Marino. West Ham takes on Swansea in the Carabao Cup with the keeper set to start on the bench with his deputy Alphonse Areola expected to start between the sticks.
“As far as I can tell, there have been some preliminary talks already going on,” West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski said. “I hope that we will calmly come to a good solution for both sides. I do not see any reasons for it to be otherwise. It’s not only West Ham’s policy that footballers of a certain age extend from season to season. It’s actually a logical solution for many reasons. It is a kind of risk minimisation.”
“Of course, the most important thing in all this is health and sports level. If I can manage these aspects, I have no problem with extending the contract,” he added. “The Premier League is the top of a footballer’s dream. I feel good enough to play a little more here. I will judge that step by step, but looking at Artur Boruc or many other goalkeepers, you can successfully play up until 40.”
