West Ham's Adrian committed to long Hammers career

West Ham Upton Park

West Ham United number one Adrian is loving life at Upton Park and gunning for European qualification.

West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian has told IBTimes UK that he has no plans to push for a move to a bigger Premier League club in the future.

Adrian, 28, arrived from Real Betis in the summer of 2013 on a free transfer, before going on to take the number one job from Jussi Jaaskelainen a few months into his debut season.

Finishing runner-up to Mark Noble for the Hammer of the Year award, the Spanish shot-stopper has since received further plaudits for his performances this season, with his shootout heroics in last month’s FA Cup win over Everton even earning him praise from La Roja boss Vicente del Bosque.

Now gunning for his first national team call-up, IBTimes UK claim that a number of big-name clubs are tracking his progress, but the in-form keeper insists he is more than content to remain at Upton Park for the foreseeable future.

"I just have to keep working and maintaining the form that I have enjoyed since I arrived at the club,” he said.

"Then whatever has to come will come. But I am very happy here and don't think of anything else. I feel very loved here. Since I started, the fans welcomed me very well. I think that if you show them your worth at the ground, they reward you."

After a successful start to the season, West Ham find themselves sitting in eighth-place in the Premier League table with 39 points from their 26 games, and a European spot well in sight.

Sam Allardyce’s uncertain future at the helm has led to some concerns that their season could easily unravel down the final stretch, but Adrian insists that the squad is not letting the manager’s contract situation affect matters on the pitch.

"No, the squad is fully focused and whatever has to happen at the end of the season will happen,” he added. “The truth is that Allardyce is doing a great job here."
