West Ham defender Angelo Ogbonna has signed a new five-year contract at the Premier League club.

Ogbonna, who joined the Hammers from Juventus in 2015, is now committed to the club until the summer of 2022.

The 29-year-old missed almost the entire second half of last season following knee surgery in January, returning for the final match.

“I think we have a long season ahead and my target is to be better than last season,” Ogbonna told the club website.
