West Ham manager Slaven Bilic confirmed on Friday that the club has activated the clause in Adrián San Miguel's contract to automatically extend the Spanish goalkeeper's contract by two years. The Hammers boss also made it clear that the door is open for Álvaro Arbeloa, who is expected to move on this summer.

Adrián prolongs West Ham stay

Adrián's contract was due to expire on 30 June but West Ham exercised their option to automatically renew his contract, which means the 30-year-old keeper with remain at the club until 2019.

"Adrián's contract was up for review but we had an option to renew his arrangement with us which we have triggered. He's one of our players and we are very happy with him", Bilic told reporters today, whilst previewing Sunday game against Burnley. Adrián arrived on a free transfer from Real Betis in 2013.

Bilic also gave an update on Arbeloa's situation. The centre-back joined from Real Madrid on a one-year free transfer last summer but has hardly featured - making just four appearances in all competitions. "Álvaro's situation is different to Adrián's. He came just for the one season and his contract is coming to an end. But I will be talking to all of the players individually about these things, but not with the press", the coach said.
