West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez has denied rumours that he is looking to leave the club in the near future.

Reports in Spain earlier in the week suggested that the former Leverkusen man was considering an early departure from the London Stadium.

The Mexico international has scored four goals since his arrival from the Bundesliga in the summer, but West Ham have struggled to begin the season, sitting in 18th place with just two wins from their opening 11 Premier League matches.

Rumours stated that Mexican side Chivas Guadalajara were his preferred destination as he looks for a way out of the struggling Hammers.

But the 29-year-old said via his official Twitter account: “Completely false. I am 100 per cent committed to helping improve the situation we are experiencing all at West Ham.

“And as always I say this I am #chivadecorazón (a Chivas fan) but I have not asked to leave West Ham in no time.”
