Finnish goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen has committed his immediate future to West Ham after signing a new one year deal at the club.

The former Bolton keeper decided to remain at the Premier League outfit despite losing his first team position last season to Spanish stopper Adrian. The Hammers finished above expectations in the league last year by avoiding relegation and ending at a respectable 13th position.

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce brought the Fin to the Premier League, when he signed him for Bolton Wanderers in 1997. 15 years later, Allardyce acquired his services again, buying him to be West Ham’s number one.

The former Finland international kept eight clean sheets for the club last season and has admitted his delight in his contract.

“I’m delighted to sign for another season and I’m really looking forward to it,” he said.

“Hopefully I can put in a proper challenge to get a starting place again. Physically, I feel good now and I felt good last season so I hope I can carry on from there and play football.”

“You never know what is going to happen next season, but the only thing in my mind is to get myself ready to play.”

“I am looking forward so that when that next chance comes, I will be in the right shape and right frame of mind to take it.”
