Hernandez seeking January move?

West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez is being linked with a return to Mexico - just six months after he moved to London.

According to Claro Sports journalist Nicolas Romay, the 29-year-old forward requested to leave the club in order to join Chivas in the forthcoming winter transfer window - only to have his appeal instantly rejected by West Ham.

The former Manchester United and Bayer Leverkusen striker is reported to have been upset by the decision to replace Slaven Bilic with David Moyes, under whom he worked briefly at Old Trafford.

Hernandez started just five Premier League fixtures under Moyes before the latter was fired just nine months into his tenure as replacement for Alex Ferguson. Earlier this week Moyes stated that Hernandez would be given a clean slate.

"He's a top goal scorer, a brilliant finisher," said Moyes. "It was difficult for him at Manchester United because I had Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Shinji Kagawa, so there was lots of competition.

"But he'll be treated the same here. If he's playing well and scoring, no problems - if he's not, it will be the same as the rest."
