The 27-year-old played a key role in the Hammers escaping relegation from the Premiership and will now remain at Upton Park until 2012 at least after agreeing the new deal.
Benayoun, who signed from Racing Santander for £2.5million in July 2005, told www.whufc.com: "I´m very pleased to have agreed this new deal. From the first moment I arrived at West Ham, the club felt like home to me. We have the best supporters in England."
