Łukasz Fabiański swapped Swansea City for West Ham United in 2018 and he immediately established himself as the club’s first choice goalkeeper.
The 35-year-old’s performances in his debut season for the London club saw him win the Hammer of the Year award.
He kept his place in the starting XI after Manuel Pellegrini was replaced by David Moyes last December.
The Poland international’s contract with the Premier League side runs down at the end of the season, but the custodian has revealed his intention is to continue beyond his current deal.
WeszłoFM interviewed the former Arsenal man and when asked about his contract situation, he said: “Talks are ongoing. I’d like to stay at West Ham. Extend the contract because I feel good here.
“I have to look at my son because he started school and I wouldn’t want to put him in a situation where he would have to change school every year. Here he finds himself well, here the climate favours him.”
Fabiański stressed there’s willingness from both parties to continue their association beyond June 2021.
“I do not know [if the contract extension will be announced soon]. I don’t focus on it very much. I think we will come to an agreement quickly. There is a desire on both sides to extend the contract,” the keeper explained.
The Pole started in West Ham’s 3-1 defeat to Manchester United last weekend and the fixture saw a small section of supporters return to the stadium for the first time since the Covid-19 outbreak in Europe.
On fans returning to stadium, Fabiański said: “A great experience. The first interaction was amazing. When you go out to warm up, and you see them, and they see you, and there’s a shout of joy. I reacted emotionally. As if I haven’t seen my family for a good few months. That’s the feeling.
“And even though there were a handful of them, the cheering was on a really nice level. I would even say it was more personal. Heard as single reaction, individual voices.
“It was such a cool situation in the first half when we were defending ourselves, someone kicked the ball out and we started to cheer on the pitch and the fans heard it and picked up on it. Cool. Nice. This rarely happens. I’m waiting for even more fans to come back.”
