 Yeah I don't see why not. Obviously there's a lot of transfer rumours with people moving here and there, but I see myself at West Ham and I'm focused on West Ham and that's all that needs to be said,

 I'm happy where I am. It's going to take a lot for me to move and as long as I'm wanted here I can see my future here. I have got nowhere I'd rather be than West Ham at the moment because West Ham gave me my chance and I want to correct last season.

 There's been no contact (from Liverpool), it's all paper talk. Nothing can turn my head and I'm fully focused, I'm fully fit and raring to go and I just want to put a good shift in. I was focusing on my injury all through the summer and I've come back stronger - hopefully I can just do the job for West Ham and keep fit.

 It wasn't really the ideal start. Everyone was hyped up for the game and everyone knew that the first game was hopefully a must-win but it didn't work out that way and on the field it wasn't that great for us. But we're going to bounce back and the players are all up for it this week against Bolton at home and we just need to put in a good performance and a good shift. Because it was the first game of the season, everyone was finding their feet and I think that I did not personally have a great performance, but I'd like to think I'm going to correct that in the next game. I know the players were really really devastated after the game about how we performed, and the boys are definitely going to put in a great performance on Saturday.
