Zavon Hines has seen his continued progression rewarded with a new contract at West Ham.

The youngster is now committed to the Upton Park outfit until the summer of 2010.

The 20-year-old has enjoyed a memorable 2008/09 campaign, breaking into the Hammers' first team fold and earning a shock international call-up for Jamaica.

He scored on his senior debut, against Macclesfield in the Carling Cup, and looks set to be another fine product of West Ham's famed academy system.

Hines has seen much of his season blighted by a knee injury since making such a promising start, but is delighted to have extended his time at the club.

"I am really happy to sign the contract," he told the club's official website.

"I didn't know if I was going to get one but it is good to know the club has a bit of faith in you.

"I just want to show the manager (Gianfranco Zola) what I can do and repay all the support he has given me. I have got to prove to him that I am worth this contract.

"He has seen a little bit of what I can do in training but I have just got to try and do my best. Next season has to be the one for me to push on."
