Hammers midfielder Pablo Fornals makes his feelings clear over his West Ham future after being dropped by David Moyes of late.
Ask any West Ham fan to name their favourite current players and Spaniard Fornals will not be far off the top of the list.
Fornals has been one of the first names on the West Ham team sheet under Moyes over the last two years.
The hard-working midfielder has been so good for the Hammers he has won his place back in the Spain squad.
The scale on which West Ham fans adore Fornals is probably best illustrated by the brilliant song they sing in tribute to their adopted Spanish cockney.
But, like many of his West Ham teammates, Fornals has hit a bit of a wall since the November international break which also coincided with the birth of his first child.
As a result the Hammers fan favourite has lost his place in the West Ham starting XI recently.
He was the only regular first team starter who was included in the West Ham side which played the dead rubber against Dinamo Zagreb last week.
Fornals was withdrawn at half-time. And he was then benched for the game against Burnley, as he had been against Chelsea previously.

Such is the way of the world in modern football – and with the January window just around the corner – some may have slight concerns over Fornals.
But the 25-year-old has made his feelings clear over his West Ham future when he responded to a post from the club on Twitter today.
“Congratulations on 100 West Ham United appearances, Pablo Fornals,” the club posted on Twitter.
“Hope many more to enjoy,” Fornals responded alongside Hammers and heart emojis.
Hearing Fornals say he wants to remain a Hammer for a long time to come will be music to the ears of West Ham fans.
As a foreign player with a foreign wife, having recently had a child there could always be a slight risk the partner may become homesick being away from family over here in England.
So to see Fornals remains fully committed to continuing his West Ham journey is a fantastic early Christmas present.
