No truth in exit rumours, insists Hernandez

West Ham striker Javier Hernandez has refuted reports suggesting that he asked to leave the club in the next transfer window.

Journalist Nicolas Romay, a presenter on sports platform Claro Sports claimed yesterday that Hernandez had handed in the transfer request following the appointment of David Moyes, whom he formally worked under at Manchester United.

However Hernandez - who joined West Ham less than six months ago - took to social media this morning in order to deny Romay's claim, which he insisted were "completely false".

Speaking via his twitter profile, the 29=year-said: "I am 100 per cent committed to helping improve the situation that we are all experiencing in West Ham. And as I always say, I am #chivadecorazón but I have not asked to leave West Ham at any time."

West Ham paid £16m to sign the Mexican international from German outfit Bayer Leverkusen in the summer, since when he has scored four goals in his opening 13 games. He is expected to miss this weekend's trip to Watford having tweaked a hamstring against Belgium.
