Injury-plagued Kieron Dyer has been told he could still have a long-term future at West Ham.
The 31-year-old’s Upton Park career has been hampered by injuries, and there have been times when it had been feared his career was over.
But co-owner David Gold insists the Hammers could offer Dyer, who has started the last two games, a new deal next summer if he can prove his fitness over the course of the campaign.
Gold said: “If he plays two thirds of the games this season, why wouldn’t we want him to stay at the club for the rest of his career?
“A new contract is certainly something we would look into.”
