“My idea and focus, I say to him every day, is that we need his performance for us.
“In the last match I was very happy with him.
“I asked in the last match at Blackpool if he is okay to help us play and he said, ‘Yeah, coach, I want to play’ and he played with a very big behaviour and commitment to us.
“After, his future belongs to him, his family and agent.
“Every day he’s here with us, he’s working very well. I want his behaviour and his focus to be on West Ham on Saturday.”
