West Ham United’s Algerian winger Sofiane Feghouli says he expects to stay with the Hammers this summer after being linked with a move away from the club.

The winger arrived in London with fans hoping that he could be a key player in helping the club finish as high as possible in the Premier League table, but he has been somewhat disappointing during his first season at the club.

The 27-year-old suffered an immediate setback after joining West Ham last summer as he picked up an injury which kept him out of action. When he returned from injury he struggled to break into the starting 11 and January signing Robert Snodgrass made it more difficult for the Algerian to get playing time.

However, the winger is still thinking positively after his poor first season in the English top flight and wants to succeed at West Ham rather than move to another club. Feghouli believes that his tough first season at the London stadium will help him to perform better next season.

Feghouli, who was speaking to French outlet RMC Sport: “I have two years left at West Ham, and as I said on social media, I see myself staying at West Ham. I’ll start again on the 10th of July with the team.”

The former Valencia man got on the scoresheet four times in all competitions for the Hammers and registered three assists so it won’t be too hard for the forward to better that tally next season.
