West Ham's Solano reveals MLS offer

Nolberto Solano has snubbed an offer from a Major League Soccer club to stay with West Ham and the midfielder says he will be offered a one-year extension.

Toronto recently approached the Peru international regarding his services, but the former Newcastle fans' favourites feels it is not the moment for him to move to the USA.

The 33-year-old is flattered to have been offered the chance to work again under former Magpies assistant John Carver, who manages Toronto, and will think about finishing his career with the MLS club in the future.

"I'm under contract with West Ham," he told RPP. "They have spoken to me regarding a one-year extension. The truth is that I feel lucky to be up there in England, where the football is currently improving.

"That's not a coincidence if the teams achieve important things in the Champions League, it shows the league has grown.

"It'd be interesting to finish my career there. I've worked with the coach and the assistant and I know them pretty well. But it's not the right moment.

"I thank them to have thought of me and it makes me feel proud."
