West Ham United captain Mark Noble signed a contract extension with the Premier League club on Tuesday and said in an open letter to fans that the 2021-22 season will be his 18th and final one at the London side.
The 33-year-old has made more than 500 appearances for the club in all competitions and ranks seventh on its all-time appearance list. He has played more Premier League games than any other West Ham player with close to 400 games.
Noble, who has scored 60 goals for West Ham, has found playing time limited during the current campaign with David Moyes’ team fifth on the table with 48 points.
“I wanted to write this letter to personally tell you that I’m delighted to have accepted the opportunity to extend my contract with the Club, until the summer of 2022,” Noble said in the letter, published on West Ham’s website.
