Cape Town - West Ham attacking midfielder Manuel Lanzini insists he's relishing his time at the club and is looking forward to next season.

Following the untimely departure of play-maker Dimitri Payet to Marseille in January, Lanzini has stepped up to help the Hammers stave off the threat of relegation with vital contributions.

The 24-year-old Argentine has scored eight goals and produced two assists this term, including an all-important winner in the 1-0 victory over second-placed Tottenham recently.

"The season was good for me on a personal level," Lanzini told the club's official website. "At the beginning it was not great [as I suffered an injury on international duty in pre-season], but then I could achieve a good level.

"Dimi [Payet] is a great player. He left and it was not a good news for the squad but luckily at the end I had a very good season.

"[With the win over Tottenham], we achieved the points to stay in Premier League, which was the most important thing. We did not have a good start of the season, but now we need to think in the next game and the next season.

"For now, I am thinking of the next game then thinking of having good holidays with the family. I am very happy here."
