West Ham youngster George Moncur is looking forward to following in his father's footsteps after signing a two-year deal, with an option for a third, with the club.
Moncur's dad John played 205 games for West Ham in a nine-year spell with the Hammers and the 19-year-old is delighted to be following the same path.
The highly-rated youngster made his first team debut in the Capital One Cup win over Crewe and has been progressing well with the Development squad this season.
Moncur said: "I am over the moon to have signed my new contract. It is great to play at this football club, so to sign for another two years is really great for me and my development.
"Hopefully it will continue to go as well as it has so far. They have put faith in me and I want to repay them by putting some good performances out on the pitch.
"If I keep on doing what I am doing then hopefully a first team chance will come. Obviously my old man played here for quite a while, so it would be nice to follow in his footsteps and make that progression to the first team."
