Michael Brown has claimed it is a “no brainer” for West Ham to offer goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski a new contract.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Spurs and Manchester City midfielder delivered his verdict after the 35-year-old revealed talks over a new deal were underway.
Fabianski told Polish outlet WeszloFM: “Talks are ongoing. I’d like to stay at West Ham. Extend the contract because I feel good here.”
The Poland international signed a three-year contract upon his arrival from Swansea City in 2018 which expires next summer.
He has firmly established himself as the Hammers’ number one and Brown has called on the club to secure his future.
He told Football Insider: “You’d think it was a no brainer unless they see that there’s someone else with a bit more long-term option I don’t know what they see.
“Obviously they’ve got their recruitment side of it but the longer it goes on, you’ll be questioning and asking why that’s not going to happen.
“He looks safe, yes he gave the penalty away (v Leeds), he was very frustrated, very unlucky with the save. He starts in the net, he actually starts the penalty in the net, he obviously thinks: ‘Well I’m going to give myself a little bit more play to be sure,’ and the second one he stuck where he was.
“So yeah, very experienced and it’s hard to think what you would change with them at the moment.”
Fabianski has played 75 games across all competitions for the Irons since his £7million move from south Wales.
Of the 13 Premier League games he has missed since his arrival, West Ham won just twice and kept two clean sheets.
