The Ivorian defender had an injury-ravaged start to his Hammers career after he joined from Hamburg in the summer of 2011.

But the former Arsenal full-back battled back to fitness and has established himself as a first-team regular under Sam Allardyce.

"It's really good for me and I'm really happy to have a new deal with West Ham," said Demel, who has made 17 appearances so far this season.

"I've had a good year this season, and even last year was good, despite the fact that I was injured for so long and struggled a bit.

"I'm happy to be at West Ham and in the team. The lads are really good with me as are the people working for the club. I hope I will stay that long to play in the new stadium as well."

ve been really impressed by Adrian when I've seen West Ham matches. Really good keeper and has earnt the 'Ammers many a point this season. Wouldn't swap Lloris for anyone either, he's currently far too good for us.
