West Ham are “in no rush” to award full-back another new contract

West Ham United are not thought to be immediately concerned with offering left-back Aaron Cresswell improved terms, according to the London Evening Standard.

Interest from the local rivals Liverpool and Manchester City has sparked reports of a possible summer departure from east London.

The English defender has been a hugely successful signing for the Hammers since arriving from Ipswich in 2014. His two full seasons in the Hammers’ team have led to shouts for an England call-up, and Jurgen Klopp apparently wants to bring him to Anfield.

The Sun claim Liverpool are willing to bid £15m for the Hammers, as Merseysiders were Cresswell’s boyhood club, also, Jurgen Klopp’s No.1 choice left-back Alberto Moreno has been often criticized this season due to his unconvincing displays in defence.

West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan has insisted none of Hammers star players will be sold this summer. He told the Evening Standard: “We review the contracts of our players all the time but there is no rush with Aaron as his deal still has six years to run, including an option period.”

Having paid just £4million for the former Championship defender, West Ham would no doubt earn a healthy profit on Cresswell should he leave.
