Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey is uncertain of his future at St James' Park following a weak season in which he started only two league games and scored only one goal.
The ex-Liverpool player is himself disappointed but determined to show his worth next season – whether for the Magpies or elsewhere.
"I needed to put in a good performance to get people talking about me — either at Newcastle or away from Newcastle," Shelvey told SunSport.
"At least I've finished with a good performance and goal.
"I'll enjoy the summer and see what the summer brings.
"To be fair, I'm glad to see the back of this season."
Shelvey was a West Ham fan as a boy and the Hammers are reportedly ready to step in if he fails to reach the agreement with Toon.
