New Zealand will continue to have a presence in football's English Premier League with All Whites captain Winston Reid today signing a two-year contract extension at West Ham United.

The centre back was delighted to have confirmed his immediate future at the east London club, signing on till the end of the 2014-15 season.

"I've really enjoyed being here," he told West Ham's website.

"It's a good club and we've done really well over the last couple of years. Now, I'm looking forward to the next two years.

"I think I have played some good football over the last two years but that goes for the whole team as well. Hopefully we can continue that.

"Of course we now plan to build on the last two seasons."

The 24-year-old joined West Ham from Danish club FC Midtjylland in 2010 after playing a prominent role the All Whites' campaign at the World Cup finals in South Africa, including scoring the dramatic late equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Slovakia in Rustenburg.

He was the only All White to move into a high profile league following the tournament and has since played 66 times for West Ham - including all but two of their league matches this season.

Reid has also captained West Ham on occasion, a big factor in him being named All Whites captain for their recent World Cup qualifiers following the playing retirement of Ryan Nelsen.

He is the only Kiwi currently plying his trade in England's top flight.
