|25/1||West Ham are 25/1 with Bet365 to finish bottom of the Premier League this season
The former England Under-21 international remained at Upton Park despite the club being relegated at the end of the 2010-11 Premier League season, before helping his side back into the top flight via the Championship play-offs, and has now expressed his delight at signing a new deal with his boyhood club.
He told the club's official website: "I'm over the moon now it's all agreed and done.
"It was just a matter of getting things right for me and my family. Everyone knows I love playing at West Ham and I enjoy my football here, so it was just a case of coming to an agreement.
"I'm delighted now it's all signed and sealed. I feel like I've grown a lot as a player since my debut and I'm still only 25.
"Playing for West Ham has been a rollercoaster and I've been through two promotions, a relegation and a 'Great Escape', but it's been thoroughly enjoyable and I look forward to the next few years of my career here."
