Marko Arnautovic confirms stay at west ham
West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic has come out with a statement on social media to declare he intends to stay at the club until at least the end of the season.
The 29-year-old Hammers forward £35 million ($46m) offer from an unnamed Chinese club this month but the ‘Clarets’ have rejected the overtures.
“I guess it’s no secret that there has been an offer for me and I have to admit that the offer was a very tempting one for me and my family,” he wrote on Instagram.
“I’ve given 100 per cent to my club duties but I have also needed some time to talk to my club, my wife and the rest of my family.
“I have now decided to put a stop to all the writings and speculation. I’m a professional footballer and the only thing I know in life is to play football.
“It’s clear that London and West Ham United feels like home for me and I hope the West Ham fans have always seen that.
“The club has pointed my career in the right direction since I joined and therefore I want to put the offers aside, help the club to climb as high as possible in the table and try to win the cup.
“Let’s focus on the rest of this season together and let them bubbles fly. COYI.”
