West Ham United goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski reveals that he is in talks to extend his contract with the club and intends to play until the age of 40.

West Ham United goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has revealed that he is in talks to extend his contract with the club and intends to play until the age of 40.

The 36-year-old, who has been with the Hammers since joining from Swansea City in 2018, will see his current deal expire at the end of the season.

Fabianski is currently the preferred number one under David Moyes, ahead of Paris Saint-Germain loanee Alphonse Areola, and the Polish stopper intends to commit his future to West Ham.

"From what I know, there have been some initial discussions already taking place. I hope that we will come to a good solution for both sides. I do not see any reasons for it to be otherwise, since the club and I are happy with this cooperation," the goalkeeper told Polish news outlet Meczyki.

Fabianski also spoke about West Ham's policy of yearly contract renewals for players in the latter stages of their career, but the former Arsenal man sees no problems with this practice.

"It's not just West Ham's policy that footballers of a certain age extend from season to season," he said. "This is actually a logical solution for many reasons. Of course, the most important thing in all this is health and sports level. If I can manage these aspects, I see no problem in extending the contract.

"I will judge step by step, but looking at Artur Boruc or many other goalkeepers, you can successfully play up to 40. I think I can continue until around that number."

Fabianski, who retired from international football earlier this month, has made 111 appearances across all competitions for West Ham, keeping 29 clean sheets.
