WEST HAM will reportedly trigger a one-year extension clause in Angelo Ogbonna’s contract if the ace is injured for the rest of the season.

The Athletic claims Ogbonna, 33, faces a nervy wait after sustaining a cruciate ligament injury during Sunday’s 3-2 win over Liverpool.

The veteran Italian will be sidelined for at least a few months.

But there are fears he could miss the rest of the campaign when further scans and test results come back.

However, if David Moyes’ worst fears are realised, West Ham will not abandon Ogbonna in his hour of need.

Instead. the Hammers will apparently trigger a year-long extension clause in his contract – which is due to expire next summer.

That will give Ogbonna the necessary time and treatment to fight his way back to full fitness under the eyes of West Ham medics.

And Ogbonna will therefore get another shot to impress once he’s back after becoming a key man this season.

The ex-Juventus star had played in eight games before his injury, forming a fine partnership with new defender Kurt Zouma.

Ogbonna is also a popular figure at the club and West Ham are keen to stick by him after his seven years of loyal service.

The centre-back’s injury now opens the door for either Issa Diop or Craig Dawson to return to the starting XI.

And after Czech billionaire Daniel Kretinsky bought a 27 per cent stake in West Ham for £150million, setting up a potential takeover, there’s every chance Moyes may be given funds to sign another defender in January.
