​Striker Javier Hernandez refutes wanting out of West Ham

West Ham striker Javier Hernandez has denied suggestions he has asked to leave the club.

Reports in his homeland said the 29-year-old Mexican wanted to rejoin Chivas before next year's World Cup.

The former Manchester United forward, who joined the Hammers from Bayer Leverkusen for £16m in July, said the stories were "completely false".

"I am 100% committed to helping improve the situation that we are all experiencing in West Ham," he tweeted.

Hernandez added he had not asked to leave "at any time".
