Javier Hernandez insists he is happy at West Ham and not looking to leave the club

Javier Hernandez has dismissed claims he is unhappy at West Ham and wants to leave the club in January.

The Mexico forward has scored three goals for the Hammers since his £16m summer switch from Bayer Leverkusen, but has often been deployed on the left side of a front three by manager Slaven Bilic.

Reports in Spain emerged on Saturday suggesting Hernandez had already indicated his desire to end his spell at the London Stadium and instructed his agent to secure a move to either Sevilla or Valencia.

But, in response to those suggestions, the 29-year-old said via his official Twitter account: “That’s a lie! I’m very happy at West Ham!! #COYI.”

Hernandez, who scored in Mexico’s 3-1 victory over Trinidad and Tobago on Saturday, has over two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract at West Ham.

West Ham have endured a mixed start to the season, despite the arrival of Hernandez at the club, and currently sit in 15th place with seven points from as many matches.
