ALL WHITES footballer Winston Reid is set to continue his stay at Premier League club West Ham United by signing a two-year contract extension.

The 24-year-old, who was captain for his side in their 1-0 FA Cup replay defeat to Manchester United this week, was off contract at the end of the season, having joined the east London side after the 2010 Fifa World Cup.

The Daily Mail reported that there was interest from other clubs including Newcastle.

However West Ham have triggered a two-year extension clause in his contract, and will renegotiate his deal in the summer, potentially offering a five-year deal.

Reid was off the radar of New Zealand Football until just before the World Cup, when it was discovered he was eligible to play for the All Whites.

He had moved to Denmark when he was 10 and had played for a number of their youth sides.

After a rough start to life in England, including relegation to the Championship (second tier) after his first season, he has hit his straps, becoming a regular in the West Ham back line.
