West Ham United are facing a busy six weeks ahead as they seek to remain above the relegation zone, after rising out of the bottom three in recent matches following an upturn in form.

David Moyes’ side have seen a valiant improvement in their form in recent weeks, beating Chelsea and Stoke City either side of a goalless draw with Arsenal, which has seen them ease the threat of danger to their side.

The Scottish boss is desperate to bolster their options in the January transfer window and the midfield is one area where they’re considering options- but their hopes of signing an experienced England international have been handed a huge blow.

Arsenal man Jack Wilshere, who is approaching the final six months of his contract at the Emirates Stadium, has revealed that his preference is to stay in North London. Speaking to Sky Sportshe said:

“I definitely want to be here. I’m enjoying my football and I love playing in the Premier League now and I want to help Arsenal get to where they should be. We just have to sort things out and I’m sure that will happen in the next couple of weeks and it will be sorted.”

Wilshere, a boyhood West Ham fan, is fighting for his future at the club following a spell of serious injury problems and a spell on-loan with Bournemouth.
