The New Zealand international joined the club back in 2010 from Denmark outfit Midtjyland in an initial deal worth nearly £4 million.
Throughout his time at the club he has become a mainstay in the Hammers squad and over seven years he has made a total of 204 appearances across all competitions, where he scored 10 goals and the same amount of assists.
The New Zealander has become a favourite among fans for his loyalty over the years, and he was named as the club’s Hammer of the Year back in 2013.
Reid featured in Slaven Bilic’s squad which faced Manchester United last weekend and made his 150th Premier League appearance during the club’s disappointing 4-0 defeat.
The 29-year-old will travel to St. Mary’s stadium on Saturday along with his team mates to face Southampton in their second match of the campaign, and will be hoping for a better result than the previous weekend.
