Michail Antonio is staying at West Ham beyond the summer, a club source has told Sky Sports News HQ.

Sky sources reported earlier this month that talks over a new contract are at a standstill, with the player unhappy at the new terms offered to him.

Antonio, who rejected an offer earlier this year, is understood to earn around £35,000 a week and the source said he has been offered £70,000 to remain at the London Stadium.

Antonio's representatives, however, have denied that is the case exclusively to Sky Sports News HQ.

They said: "Michail Antonio has categorically not been offered a £70,000-a-week contract thereby has never rejected a contract.

"If the club were to offer a deal in that region I am sure it would be signed but the offer was well below that value."

Antonio is thought to be of interest to a number of Premier League clubs including Chelsea, but a Hammers source has told Sky Sports News HQ: "Antonio will be going nowhere.

"He's got five years left on his current contract and he's a valued member of Slaven [Bilic's] side.

"He's got the chance to double his money but if it's not a good enough offer for him then he will have to stay on what he's on."

Antonio has not played since he aggravated a previous hamstring against Swansea three weeks ago.
