McCartney hopes Allardyce will offer him a new deal at West Ham

West Ham defender George McCartney is hoping to sign a new contract at Upton Park, reports Sky Sports.

Sam Allardyce

The former Sunderland defender sees his current deal expire in the summer, and with talks yet to take place the 32-year-old is hoping to play himself into a new deal.

McCartney, who earned 34 caps with Northern Ireland before retiring from international football for a second time in 2010, has featured 23 times so far for the Hammers this season, and hopes that his contribution so far – as well as those in the final few games of the campaign – will make it difficult for manager Sam Allardyce to let his contract lapse.

He does not, however, seem too panicked at the lack of discussions thus far, however – as Allardyce has already told his players that any negotiations will be postponed until the Hammers are mathematically guaranteed Premier League football next term.

Speaking to the Newham Recorder, he said: “Of course I want to stay here. I am not getting any younger of course, but it would be lovely to be here next season.

“Talks haven't started yet. The manager has already stated he will wait until we are mathematically safe before he starts talking as I think there are a few players out of contract.

“We will wait until that day comes and see what happens.”
