West Ham goalkeeper Robert Green insists he is happy with life at Upton Park after being linked with a summer move to Arsenal.[LNB] The Gunners are thought to be weighing up a £6million move for the nine-cap England international.[LNB]However, the ex-Norwich City shot-stopper maintains he is in no rush to leave and is happy staying at Upton Park.[LNB]Green is anxious to avoid another season of struggle and is backing joint-owner David Gold and David Sullivan to get things right off the pitch.[LNB]West Ham are on the lookout for a new manager following Gianfranco Zola's sacking, although Green is simply focusing on doing his best for the club rather than other issues.[LNB]"I have always stated that I am a happy Hammer," he told the Romford Recorder. "I want to be here and not fighting relegation.[LNB]"Realistically that's something that's out of my hands and they (the owners) can say as much as they want to say about it.[LNB]"I am sure the two chairmen will take their chance now to decide where they want to take the club and who that might involve.[LNB]"There has been a lot of talk and a lot of speculation and I am sure come the start of pre-season, things will be a lot clearer, but that is down to them.[LNB]"For me, my job is playing in goal and that is what I focus on. I am a bit too old and long in the tooth to get too focused on things that are out of my control.[LNB]"I just sit there and accept what comes along, focus on the 90 minutes every week when it comes along. That is my job and that is what I will carry on doing."
