Dave Sullivan comments on star player's West Ham future on Twitter

Dave Sullivan, the son of West Ham United co-owner David, has taken to Twitter to comment on the future of one of the club's star players.

Dave junior, pictured far right above with dad David and brother Jack, is a keen user of the social networking site to keep in touch with Hammers fans.

And he has taken to Twitter to offer his views on the future of loan star Manuel Lanzini.

The little Argentinian has been a revelation in East London since signing on loan from UAE side Al Jazira last summer.

Quite how or why the supremely talented and pacy midfielder ended up in that footballing backwater is a mystery but he has quashed any doubts over his ability to cut it in the Premier League with his performances this season.

Lanzini, the product of River Plate's famous academy, has spent the best part of three months out through injury so far in his debut campaign.

Hammers fans desperate to see star stay

But his return to the first team has coincided with Slaven Bilic's side winning four games in a row against Blackburn Rovers, Sunderland, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton and drawing 1-1 last time out in the FA Cup at Manchester United.

Hammers fans are desperate to see the club activate their option to buy the star at the end of the season, as reported by the likes of Sky Sports.

And now Sullivan has had his say on the matter responding to a question about the 23-year-old's future on Twitter.

"Time shall tell but I personally would love him to be a West Ham United player for many years to come," Sullivan said.

Lanzini's dazzling displays this season have caught the eye of some of Europe's top clubs.

But the star recently told the Evening Standard he 'feels at home' in East London and wants to stay with the Irons.
