Cape Town - West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez is adamant he has not asked to leave the club in the wake of David Moyes' appointment as manager.

The Mexico international is reunited with Moyes, the pair having worked together at Manchester United during the 2013/14 season.

Hernandez started just five Premier League games for the Red Devils under the Scot, who said last week that the 29-year-old would not be guaranteed a place in his team.

'Chicharito' had featured in all 11 league matches for the Hammers from the start under former boss Slaven Bilic, but denied wanting out now that Moyes has taken over at the London Stadium.

Reports in Spain claim the off-season signing from Bayer Leverkusen is plotting a quick exit, with a return to his former club Chivas mooted in January.

But Hernandez wrote on Twitter: "Completely false. I am 100 per cent committed to helping improve the situation we are experiencing all at West Ham.

"And as always I say this I am #chivadecorazón but I have not asked to leave West Ham in no time."
