Marshall signs new deal at West Ham

Northern Ireland striker Callum Marshall has penned a new three-year contract with Premier League side West Ham United.

The 19-year-old, who made his first team debut for the Hammers in their recent FA Cup tie against Bristol City, penned a new deal with the London-based club which expires at the end of the 2026-27 season.

West Ham Sporting Director Mark Noble said: “Since signing in 2022, Callum has shown plenty of quality, dedication and also the potential to push on and forge a place in senior football.

“While the contract is a reward for an impressive run of performances for our academy’s senior age groups, it will also serve as the next incentive for him to continue his progression and reach a higher level at West Ham."

“Callum will need to keep working away at his game to reach the levels he wants to reach,” added Noble. “Ultimately it is down to him to keep that same attitude and maximise his potential.” 

After committing his future to West Ham, the Glengormley native, who has scored 19 goals for the Hammers' U21 side this term, will immediately go out on loan to Championship outfit West Bromwich Albion until the end of the season - to continue his football development.

“I am delighted to have signed a new contract with West Ham United,” confirmed Marshall. “The  club has shown a lot of faith in me, bringing me over from Northern Ireland and giving me opportunities at U18, U21 and first team levels.

“I am happy to have my future settled and to be going out on loan to a big club in the Championship in West Brom, where I’m looking forward to continuing to work on and improve my all-round game."

“It’s a big step for me,” added the former Linfield forward. “I know it’s a challenge moving up to the Championship from Under-21s football. I’m going to give it my all and try to work my way into the squad and then the team.

 “I want to thank my family and everyone who has supported me throughout my career.”
