West Ham offer Johnson new and improved five-year contract

·1 min

West Ham United have offered a new five-year deal to a 24-year-old full-back named Ben Johnson. Johnson’s current contract expires at the end of this month, and clubs such as Crystal Palace, Leeds United, and Rangers have shown interest in signing him. While Johnson has turned down previous contract offers from West Ham, the club has presented improved terms in an attempt to secure his long-term commitment. Johnson is currently considering his options and has expressed the desire for assurances about playing time. Previous limited game time and competition for the right-back position have been factors in his decision-making. The club’s new head coach, Julen Lopetegui, has expressed a desire for Johnson to remain with the team. Johnson has previously been recognized with awards and has won championships in European competitions.
