Pablo Fornals has made a promise to West Ham United as speculation emerges his future could be elsewhere.
West Ham fans have not had much to cheer this season.
But the turnaround of £24million summer signing Fornals has been a rare highlight.
Hammers boss David Moyes came in for criticism over his treatment of Fornals since returning to East London in December.
When Moyes arrived, the Spaniard had been West Ham’s best player for two months as he finally started to adapt to the Premier League following a tough start.
But Moyes somewhat perplexingly dropped Fornals, at one point from the squad altogether.
Fornals sale not ‘off limits’ this summer – report
But Fornals turned things around, becoming a firm fixture in Moyes’s starting XI before the enforced break.
West Ham fans love Fornals for his tireless work ethic.
And that is backed up by the statistics too as he boasts the finest running stats in the entire top flight (Sky Sports).
But The Independent claimed at the weekend that Fornals could be sold in the next window.
“The Independent has been told that no West Ham players are considered “off-limits” this summer, including £45m club-record signing Sebastian Haller and Spanish midfielder Pablo Fornals,” The Independent reports.
“However, Declan Rice is set to remain in east London, with clubs unlikely to meet West Ham’s asking price considering the financial constraints of the coronavirus crisis.”
West Ham favourite makes pledge over future
But despite talk that his stay at West Ham could be short-lived, Fornals has pledged to stay and get better next season (Sky Sports News).
“Lots of the guys (at West Ham) ask about me, my situation and how I’m doing living this situation alone at home, so I’m happy to be in this team.
“I’d needed a few months but I think now I have been having good games, creating good chances and scoring goals. I was really feeling good (before the break) and excited because I was playing well. I come from a small town, a small city, so London for me is like a whole country!
“I’d recommend to all Spanish players to come here and learn about these things. You can’t explain to anybody the intensity of this league and this culture, you need to see it (for yourself).
Hammers fans will be buoyed by Pablo’s pledge
“I’m confident that 2019/20 will not be my best season in England. I want to show our fans that what people saw this year is not the real Pablo Fornals. I can do better (next season).”
West Ham fans will be delighted to hear Fornals is enjoying life at the club and intends to stick around.
The Hammers faithful have taken him to their hearts for his workrate, passion and desire.
And he has started to show his eye for a killer pass and the odd goal too as he has flourished.
