Vaz Te wants chance to lead line for West Ham

Ricardo Vaz Te has told West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce to forget about buying a new striker.

Vaz Te scored the winning goal in the Championship play-off final to condemn Blackpool to at least another year in the second tier of English football, and secure West Ham's passage back to the top flight with a 2-1 victory.

Vaz Te scored 12 goals in 18 appearances after arriving at Upton Park from Barnsley in January, and thinks he can do the job in the Premier League.

The Portuguese striker said: "I have confidence that I can score more goals next season

"I am looking forward to the challenge that being in the Premier League brings."
