West Ham United midfielder Pedro Obiang has revealed that he wishes to become a mainstay within the club after signing a new five year contract to keep him at the London Stadium until 2022.
The 25-year-old Obiang said, “I think here we can do many things. When I start to play, I have confidence and I don’t know why the situation changed (last season).
“I had the possibility to start and to demonstrate what I wanted to demonstrate in my first season here, but for many reasons I didn’t do. Now I have time to do it.”
The Spanish international Obiang joined West Ham from Italian side Sampdoria in 2015. During his first season with the club, he managed to make 23 appearances in all competitions. Last season however, he struggled for regular first team play.
Obiang could be a key player for the Hammers who are striving to improve next season.
