After appearing in close to 400 matches for boyhood club, it is fair to say that Mark Noble has earned the right to keep playing for West Ham, and he hopes to keep it that way.
The 29-year-old Englishman ha sonly played for the East London side for all of his career, and has stated that he doesn’t see himself playing for another club in the future, but admits that things change very quickly in football.
Noble, who is The Hammers longest serving ace at the moment wants to end his career with the club, as his current deal takes him to just past 33 in age.
Noble is aware of the development hitting the club, after they attracted the likes of Slaven Bilic, Dimitri Payet, Andre Ayew and have moved to a stadium that can rival any other in the whole of the division and he wants to part of it long term.
Speaking to the club’s official website, he said as quoted by Daily Mail:
“To me, looking at myself at the age of nearly 30, I’ve still got a contract until I’m 33 and thinking about playing for another football club would be funny – I think Steven Gerrard said that as well,”
Noble was made captain of the club two years ago and is a central midfielder full of poise and class. Since breaking into the club in 2004, he has made 395 appearances for the club, scoring 47 goals, undoubtedly a club legend.
