Hammers eye Djemba-Djemba

08 Dec 2008 - 16:21:14

Former Manchester United and Aston Villa midfielder Eric Djemba-Djemba is keen to return to England with West Ham United his preferred destination.

The 27-year-old Cameroon international moved to Old Trafford in the summer of 2003 but failed to impress in his 39 first-team appearances for the club.

He also struggled during his time at Villa and was loaned out to Burnley in the second half of the 2006-07 campaign.

After spending a brief time in Qatar, Djemba-Djemba is now trying to resurrect his career in Belgium with Odense, and played against Villa earlier this season in the Intertoto Cup.

He told Sky Sports: "I'm having a good season.

"I lost my way a bit when I signed for Manchester United, but I'm a good player. You don't play alongside Roy Keane and Paul Scholes if you're a bad player.

"West Ham are interested, I've heard, so that means I'm having a good season.

"I have unfinished business with the Premier League, so who knows? It would be good to go back there and prove myself."
