The Angels could stay at their current facility in Anaheim through the 2020 season, despite some uncertainty after Los Angeles took advantage of its one-year opt-out provision in October so the franchise wouldn't be committed to its lease through 2029.

Los Angeles and the city are expected to agree to a one-year extension of the team’s lease at Angel Stadium, according to the Los Angeles Times, and both sides are working toward a long-term agreement to keep the Angels in Anaheim.

Harry Sidhu, Anaheim's mayor, will introduce a new proposal to the Anaheim City Council during a meeting Tuesday.

MLB trade rumors: Brewers, Yankees still talking about Sonny Gray

The Angels resumed talks on a new lease with Anaheim this year, after negotiations to build a new ballpark in Tustin were unsuccessful. Although the Angels ' current lease extends through 2029, the team can opt out no later than Oct. 16, 2018, which would terminate the lease after the 2019 season.

“It is clear the team’s priority is to stay in Anaheim if we can work out a deal that benefits our residents, the city and the team,” Sidhu said in a statement after meeting with Angels owner Arte Moreno to discuss the stadium lease. “We need a plan to make that happen, and we need time to make that happen.”

The Times notes a short-term deal would not only give the Angels a home beyond this year, but it would also give the new city council time to find options for keeping the team in Anaheim, which could include a new or renovated stadium. On the other side, the Angels could consider alternative facilities in Southern California with the extension.

“We realized a one-year extension will give us adequate time to work collaboratively on a long-term relationship,” Moreno said in a statement after meeting with Sidhu.

West Ham hold further talks with Maxi Gomez.
West Ham have held “further talks” with Celta Vigo over the signing of Maxi Gomez, report the Mail. The nine-time capped Uruguay striker is seen as a direct replacement for Marko Arnautovic, who still looks likely to depart the club this month. Valued at around £40million, Gomez is an exciting target, having scored eight goals and registered five assists in 14 appearances for struggling Celta this season. The 22-year-old was the subject of interest in the Hammers last summer, but they felt the asking price was too high at the time. Much is likely to depend on the cloudy future of Arnautovic, who wants to leave the London Stadium.
