IRELAND INTERNATIONAL DEFENDER Joey O’Brien has signed a new long term deal at West Ham.

The 26-year-old Dubliner joined the Hammers on a free back in 2011 after a nightmare 18-month period of injuries resulted in his release from Bolton Wanderers.

Former Trotters boss Sam Allardyce, who gave O’Brien his first chance in senior football, saw his gamble pay off however.

The full-back was excellent during West Ham’s promotion-winning campaign and has taken that form into the current campaign – even scoring the winner on his 50th appearance on New Year’s Day.

On their official website, the club announced today that O’Brien has signed up until the summer of 2016.
