West Ham captain Mark Noble will bring his 18-year spell at the Premier League club to a close at the end of next season.
The 33-year-old midfielder has signed a one-year extension to his current deal ahead of leaving the Hammers in the summer of 2022.
Noble has only made three appearances in the league this term but his manager David Moyes has hailed his influence at the club.
“I am delighted to have accepted the opportunity to extend my contract with the club until the summer of 2022," Noble wrote in an open letter to West Ham's fans.
“I have also decided, after much consideration, that the 2021/22 season will be my 18th and final one as a first-team player at West Ham United.
“It is a decision I have made following a lot of discussion with my family, my friends and people at the football club.
“First and foremost, I still firmly believe I have a lot to offer on the pitch. I would not have signed a new contract if I didn’t feel I could do myself justice or bring value to the team.
“Next season is going to be very emotional for me, but right now is not the time for reflection or looking back on my career.
“I’ve made this announcement at this time so that I can now just get back to focusing with the players and staff on finishing this season as strongly as we possibly can.”
