Hammers eye new Bilic deal

Sullivan will make offer 'in January'

West Ham United will offer Slaven Bilic a contract extension next year, according to chief David Sullivan.

The Hammers are currently fifth in the Premier League, and Sullivan says that the former Croatia boss will be handed a new contract in January, providing that he can prove that the Irons' rise is sustainable.

"I will give Slaven a new deal in January," joint-chairman Sullivan told the Daily Mirror.

"I just want to see that he is not a one-season wonder. I'm sure he is not, but we will talk next January, or at the end of next season.

"I have to tell you that he is interested in the project, not money.

"He stayed at Croatia on £2,000 a week for five years when he would have had bundles of offers.

“He is not really into money. He is more interested in getting the best players for the club than the best money for himself."

In the race for Champions League qualification, the Hammers sit a point behind fourth-placed Manchester City in the English top flight and on the same total as Manchester United, who are sixth.
