West Ham United fullback Herita Ilunga has confirmed the interest of AS Monaco.

Monaco had hoped to sign him on loan first but West Ham are hopeful of a deal.

Liverpool have also shown interest in Ilunga in the past but a move there now is unlikely.

He said: "I heard the news about Monaco. My job is to play every day and I am fighting for that, every player wants to play."
