Alou Diarra isn't giving up on his future at West Ham United.

The midfielder has spent the second-half of this season on-loan at Rennes.

"I'd like to continue with my experience abroad and I hope that unlike this season, I will have the opportunity to carry out preseason with my new team. I still have two years of my contract with West Ham ," Diarra told RMC, "and I have not ever said I wanted to leave this club."
