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."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
