West Ham chief executive Scott Duxbury has dismissed rumours suggesting that Freddie Ljungberg is set to leave the club.
Reports had claimed that the Hammers are keen to cut their wage bill over the summer and that the Swedish international would be among those shown the door.
"Rumours that Freddie is leaving are nonsense," he told the Echo.
"His pedigree stands for itself.
"He is an important part of this club's future.
"And he has already shown how important he can be for West Ham when available.
"I mean, he's playing the Euros this summer for Sweden and is going to be one of the tournament's big stars.
"He still has his best years ahead of him."
