Hernandez refuses to rule out West Ham exit

West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez has refused to rule out a summer exit from the club after a disappointing campaign.

The Mexican striker moved to the London Stadium last summer, and was hailed as one of the bargains of the transfer window having made the £14 million move from Bayer Leverkusen.

He of course made a name for himself at Manchester United, where he scored 59 goals in 157 games, although a vast number of those appearances were from the bench. He eventually left Old Trafford in 2015, moving to the Bundesliga where he scored a further 39 goals in 76 games for Leverkusen.

However since arriving at West Ham in the summer, Hernandez has been restricted to just 16 Premier League starts, scoring seven goals.

He was heavily linked with a move away from the East London side in January but has now hinted that he was unable to force a move away:

“There has always been speculation as to whether I will stay or leave and I cannot guarantee anything,” said the 29-year-old.

“I have two more years of contract with West Ham, and everything will come up.

“You never know, because in the winter period I wanted to find my way out to have more minutes and could not.”
