Besiktas striker Hugo Almeida has decided against moving to West Ham United.

The Portuguese international has been in sensational form for the Turkish side this season, netting 12 goals in 17 games.

"I am still in talks with the club over my contract extension," Almeida said.

"We haven't agreed anything yet and everything will become clear in the near future.

"I am happy here the World Cup is coming up and I want to remain at the club.

"However, nothing has been decided yet."
