Maiga: I know I'm surplus to requirements at West Ham

Modibo Maiga admits he knows he's on the outer at West Ham United.

The striker featured in their FA Cup thrashing at Nottingham Forest on Sunday.

He said: "That result was unfair on the kids that played and on me. It was just unfortunate with the injuries that the manager had that we were forced to put out a patched up side.

"I am hungry to prove though that I can play at the very top. I understand I am surplus to requirements here and I want a chance to prove I can play as a central striker and score goals.

"The club will let me leave and I know I can make a success of wherever I go."
