West Ham pair Moses Makasi and Noha Sylvestre ink new deals

Published on: 24 May 2017

West Ham midfield pair Moses Makasi and Noha Sylvestre have penned new one-year contracts.

The duo, who have both regularly featured for the Academy of Football's U23s this season, have put pen to paper on contracts which will see them remain in east London until 2018.

Makasi – now 21 – has been with West Ham since he was nine-years-old, and was naturally delighted to extend his stay at London Stadium.

He told whufc.com: “It's a good feeling. I've obviously had a good season personally, going on pre-season tour with the first team [to Seattle last summer] and I had a couple of games on the bench, so all-in-all, it's been a good season.

“I played nearly all the games for the U23s to win the Play-Offs with them, so that was great.

“For the first team, there have been a few of us on the bench this season and it shows that hard work counts. If you have a good season, then the manager is always watching."

Sylvestre, son of former Switzerland international Patrick, has impressed this campaign with his versatility, featuring at full-back though primarily being a central midfielder.

“I'm obviously delighted to sign," he said. “I have always wanted to stay at West Ham, and I've been here for four years now.

“I'm happy about everything here – the football, the life outside of football, because that's very important."
