West Ham coaches Julian Dicks and Chris Woods have signed new two-year contracts with the club.

Former Hammers full-back Dicks, a team-mate of manager Slaven Bilic in their playing days at Upton Park, was named first-team coach last summer.

Ex-Norwich and England keeper Woods has been goalkeeping coach at the club since last summer, working with first-choice Adrian and back-up Darren Randolph who is at Euro 2016 with the Republic of Ireland.

Woods told the club's official website: "Slaven has made me feel so welcome and he has been fantastic to work with since the day I arrived. He leaves no stone unturned and his enthusiasm rubs off on everybody.

"It has been a great privilege for me to work for a club with such great tradition. Hopefully we can grow even stronger."
