West Ham's only senior goalkeeper has dismissed reports linking him with a return to his former club.

Speaking in an interview with Radio Marca Sevilla, West Ham's Spanish goalkeeper Adrian admitted that he was honoured to be linked with a return to Real Betis - the club from whom West Ham signed him in 2013.

However he refused to discuss the possibility of returning to La Liga this summer, stating that he intended to see out the final year of his contract at West Ham before making a decision on his long term future.

"I have one more year left on my contract [at West Ham] and first I have to listen to the opinion of my club and see whether they trust me," he said.

"The rumours regarding Betis have always been there. There have been quite a few movements [at West Ham] since last season ended, they are refreshing the team which is perhaps good for us.

"Now I need to learn Pellegrini's opinion of me. We have to to sit down and arrive at the best decision for everyone, to see if they trust me and give me the opportunity to continue playing.

"I've been at West Ham for five seasons and I do not have to anyone the level I'm at. However at the moment, they have not told me anything."

The 31-year-old signed for West Ham on a free transfer in the summer of 2013, initially signing a two year deal with the option of a further two years.

In 2015 when he was awarded an identical 'two plus two' contract, with the additional two-year clause -keeping him at West Ham until the summer of 2019 - triggered by West Ham last summer.
