Winston Reid has insisted that he has never considered leaving West Ham United as talks begin over a contract extension for the defender.

A number of clubs are understood to be tracking the New Zealand international, leading to speculation that he could move on from Upton Park.
However, the 24-year-old has made it clear that he has no plans to go anywhere and is hoping to sign a new deal with West Ham.
"We are talking," he said in the Daily Star. "There's an option in there for both parties to take another two years at the end of the season.
"I've always wanted to stay here. I enjoy being here."Don't miss any live and exclusive football coverage this festive season. Click here to visit Sky Sports' Festive Calendar
