West Ham United are a traditional club and are currently the Conference League Champions. In turn, their success meant that they entered the Europa League once again but without their talisman Declan Rice who sought out pastures new when he moved to Arsenal in the summer. Yet, they have started the season well currently in 7th place and it is thanks to a player who has taken on the mantle of being the star man at West Ham.

Conference League hero expected to sign a new contract

He scored the winner in Prague. he has four England caps to his name and we all know about that chant! Jarrod Bowen is a big favourite in the East End of London and a player that has had to work hard to get where he is today.

The quick, direct, and times devastating winger has attracted attention from Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool as he looks to continue rebuilding Liverpool once again, especially with speculation surrounding Mo Salah still ongoing, but David Moyes and co will be hoping that Bowen favours staying in London rather than heading to Merseyside.

How has he started the season at West Ham?

The new contract is not just to deter a bid from Liverpool in January but also because Bowen deserves one. With his current contract set to expire in June 2025 there is no real hurry to give Bowen a new deal but with five goals in six appearances in the Premier League this season there might be more than just Liverpool looking at the talent that Bowen has to offer.

When will the new contract be signed?

Bowen is expected to sit down with West Ham representatives in the coming weeks and they are anticipated to go smoothly. Bowen is adored at West Ham by fans and staff plus he is getting regular game time which holds him in good stead with England manager Gareth Southgate for the forthcoming European Championships.
