HEREFORDSHIRE football star Jarrod Bowen has signed a seven-year contract with Premier League side West Ham United.

The 28-year-old already has five goals to his name this season and has accumulated 87 direct goal involvements since signing for the London side.

Leominster-raised Bowen played for Hereford United before being signed for Hull City and then West Ham.

Bowen has earned four England caps and is part of Gareth Southgate’s squad to face Australia on Friday night and Italy next Tuesday.

Speaking about signing a long-term deal with West Ham until summer 2030, Bowen told the club’s website: “Everyone knows what this club means to me, so committing my future until 2030 means so much to me and my family. 

“I’ve loved every minute of my time here. Winning the Europa Conference League in Prague was an amazing moment, scoring the winner in the last minute will be something I’ll cherish forever. 

“It’s left us all wanting that feeling again and again – we want to create more memories together, for our fantastic fans, and for this fantastic football club.”

West Ham boss David Moyes added: “It’s a brilliant piece of business from the club to tie him down to a new long-term contract.

“His goal in Prague will live long in the memory for everyone connected to West Ham – it’s given him a platform to go from strength to strength and we’re really reaping the benefits, he’s getting better and better.

“He’s a fantastic boy and an outstanding professional – I’m sure his positive progress will continue over the course of his new contract.”
