There has been a “new” update on West Ham United player Jarrod Bowen, as well as a contract extension proposed at the London Stadium.
West Ham United latest news
David Moyes’ Hammers have started the current Premier League season in good form, with victories against big-spending Chelsea, high-flying Brighton, and newly-promoted Luton Town.
Building on their Europa Conference League victory last season, some of West Ham’s summer signings have settled in fast.
Midfielders Edson Alvarez and James Ward-Prowse play as though they’ve been at the club for years, while Ghanaian prodigy Mohammed Kudus joins with a bright future.
West Ham recorded their first defeat of the season on Saturday as European champions Man City clinched a 3-1 win courtesy of goals from Jeremy Doku, Bernardo Silva and Erling Haaland.
However, given they’re arguably the best side on the continent right now, supporters can forgive Moyes’ side and look forward to their next league game away to Liverpool.
Jarrod Bowen new contract
One of West Ham’s star players has been England winger Bowen, who has racked up three goals and one assist in just five league appearances so far.
The 26-year-old struggled in parts last campaign but has since returned to form; dazzling as one of West Ham’s main attacking outlets alongside Ward-Prowse, Lucas Paqueta and Michail Antonio.
Antonio has reportedly already signed a new deal at West Ham, and the Irons are apparently really pushing to tie down Bowen on top of him.
That is according to Irons reporter Toby Cudworth, who writes on X and in a co-wrote article for 90min that a fresh terms are on the cards for Bowen.
West Ham are apparently confident they can get him to sign and remain “hopeful” of him putting pen to paper as “negotiations continue”.
NEW: West Ham hopeful Jarrod Bowen will sign contract extension as negotiations continue,” wrote Cudworth on X.
“Current deal runs out in the summer of 2025, incredibly he has only missed 2 PL games since joining in January 2020.”
For 90min, Cudworth writes with fellow reporter Graeme Bailey that West Ham are working hard to seal a new and improved deal for Bowen.
How good is Jarrod Bowen?
The former Hull City star has been a revelation since joining West Ham in January 2020.
Over his 163 appearances in all competitions, Bowen has 43 goals and 32 assists to his name, with Sky pundit Paul Merson also branding him “outstanding” and “underrated”.
“Jarrod Bowen is someone who got recognition on the grandest stage recently as he made his England debut, but I still believe he’s underrated,” Merson said to Sports Keeda last summer.
“He’s an outstanding player who has gone from strength to strength since moving from Hull City to West Ham – I can’t believe Gareth Southgate took so long to call him up.”
“When West Ham have a big game coming up, he’s a player who gets rested, along with Declan Rice, and that just shows how much he’s grown in stature.” He reminds me of a forward version of James Milner – dependable, honest, and willing to go the extra mile for the team.”
