West Ham United striker Dean Ashton is keen to hold talks with the club over his long-term future at Upton Park, following talk of interest from Manchester United. The 25-year-old still has another two years left on his current contract with the Hammers, but is keen to find out what the club have planned for next season. He said: "As far as I know I'll be at West Ham. The only worry is that the club haven't spoken to me yet, so I don't know where I stand. "Obviously I'd like to speak to the club about my future. I'd just like to know where my future lies. "Obviously I had to prove myself after spending so long out injured and I feel I've done that now. "West Ham is the team I play for. I want to talk to the club because I've really enjoyed myself here and that's all I'm really thinking about. "A lot has been written about me, but the thing I'm most worried about is what West Ham think of me." Ashton has been restricted to just 51 appearances for the Irons in his 18 months at the club, scoring 17 goals in the process.
