Carlton Cole has been quick to deny reports he is unhappy at West Ham because of delays in agreeing a new long term contract.
The striker admits he is not looking to move on from Upton Park and remains hopeful of reaching agreement on an extension.
"I don't want the fans to think that I want to leave," Cole told the club's official website.
"I am happy at West Ham. I have just had a baby and I don't want to go anywhere. I am really settled in my life and only want to work hard and do well for West Ham.
"I am just looking forward to a bright future and when the time is right the deal will be done.
"All I am thinking about is pushing on this season and scoring more goals. That is my main objective.
"I am happy with my current situation and hopefully I can carry on playing games and doing my best for West Ham.
"When I play, I am happy. Every time I play for West Ham I try and give 100 per cent and hopefully I can stay fit and be available for selection every game like I was last season."
