West Ham youngster Junior Stanislas has signed a new contract keeping him at Upton Park until 2013.

Stanislas, 19, scored on his first senior start - and only his second appearance - for the Hammers in last Saturday's 2-0 win against Sunderland.

The winger told the club website: "It's good to have signed. I've been working hard and doing well on the training ground so the new contract is a bonus.

"It's a great show of faith and I've just got to keep working hard."


Stanislas recently made his debut for England Under-20s.

The contract extension for Stanislas comes only days after the east London club agreed new deals with Mark Noble and James Tomkins.

Stanislas added: "James and I have been together quite a lot recently, with England as well, so for him to sign and me to sign a few days later is obviously great.

On Saturday's derby against Tottenham, Stanislas said: "We're chasing that European spot in seventh and we've got quite a few games so hopefully we'll get that spot.

"It's a derby so it means a lot, but we are going into every game looking to win. We're confident as always."
