Cresswell said: “I’ve been here for six years and I’ve loved every minute of it.

“We’ve got a fantastic changing room – everyone gets on. There are no egos and everything is together.

“If you want to push on and kick on in the league, then you need that spirit and togetherness. I think we’ve certainly got that.”

The Liverpool-born left-back is already the third longest-serving player at the London Stadium behind captain Mark Noble and Winston Reid.

Cresswell started his career with Tranmere before moving to Ipswich as a 21-year-old in 2011.

He was called into the senior England squad for the first time in November 2016 and has subsequently featured twice more for his country.

The news is a further boost for Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini who has already convinced Manuel Lanzini, Arthur Masuaku and Robert Snodgrass to sign new deals this season.
