Chicharito discusses West Ham future

West Ham’s Javier Hernandez has refused to rule out a move away from the club this January.

The 30-year-old has been at West Ham since arriving from Bayer Leverkusen in 2017, but has found first-team opportunities limited under Manuel Pellegrini with Marko Arnautovic preferred as the side’s first-choice forward.

The former Manchester United striker, who has made just two league starts this season, says he is happy at the club but admits a move away is possible in search of more regular game time.

“I don’t know, even this winter! I want to play, to participate as much as possible and I have the ability to win a place but I need to respect the decisions being taken and for that reason I am not closing the door on moving this winter.’’ The Mexican international told Marca.

“There is an exit door and another in the summer. I am happy here but I want to play more.

“I am not ruling it out but at the same time it needs to be for a top club and that is the case now or in the summer.”

Hernandez has scored nine goals in 37 Premier League appearances for the Hammers.
