The 25-year-old, who captained the Hammers on his 200th start in Tuesday night's Capital One Cup game against Wigan, has played 224 games for the club since joining as a trainee in 2003.

The Londoner has played every minute of the promoted club's Barclays Premier League campaign this term and is the Hammers' current longest-serving player.

"I'm over the moon now it's all agreed and done," Noble told West Ham's website.

"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."

Noble made his first-team debut in 2004 and was part of the squad that won promotion to the top flight in 2005.

He captained England Under-21s at the 2009 European Championship finals and appeared at the same competition again in 2011.
