West Ham United defender Dan Potts has signed a one-year contract extension with the Hammers.

The 20-year-old's deal also includes the option of a further year, held by the club.

Potts has made five Premier League appearances for Sam Allardyce's side and with George McCartney leaving the Boleyn Ground, will be keen to try and make the left-back berth his own next term.

Speaking to the club's website, Potts said: "I'm very excited to have signed the new contract. We're into the summer break now and it's good to put pen to paper.

"I'm looking forward to pre-season already and can't wait to get back going. Hopefully I can get a good pre-season under my belt and push into the season itself."

The Barking-born defender continued: "It's going to be a massive year for me personally. Not only for the club, but also from my point of view it's a big year and I'm hoping to push on this pre-season and force my way into the team.

"If I can get into the manager's eyes, hopefully I can be in with a shout going into the first game of the season."
