Herita Ilunga is committing his long-term future to West Ham United.

The Sun says Ilunga has snubbed Liverpool to sign a four-year contract at Upton Park.

The Hammers will pay Toulouse £2million when the DR Congo left-back's loan runs out in May.

Ilunga's impressive performances had alerted Kop boss Rafa Benitez.

But West Ham chief Gianfranco Zola said: "We really wanted to keep Ilunga. He has done fantastically well."
