Michail Antonio has refused to commit to signing a new contract at West Ham United, giving rise to speculation over his future at the club.

The Hammers are said to be keen to keep hold of the Englishman but he appears to be keeping his options open for the time being.

“Right now, nothing is really happening on the contract talks,” Antonio told Sky Sports.

“We’ll just see how things go. At the moment my head is not being swayed in any way. I just want to play my football and whatever happens happens.”

When pressed on whether he would sign a new deal, the winger was non-committal, replying only with “We’ll see”.

Antonio has been in excellent form so far this season, contributing eight goals and five assists in the Premier League despite the team’s overall inconsistency.

The Irons have struggled since moving from Upton Park to the London Stadium last summer and a disastrous start to the campaign saw them hovering dangerously above the relegation zone in the opening few months.

However, a positive run over the Christmas period and into the new year has left them sitting 10th with 13 games remaining.

West Ham have already lost one key player this term in Dimitri Payet and will be keen to ensure that Antonio remains at the club during this period of transition.

Their next fixture is a tricky visit to Watford in the Premier League on Saturday evening, where the home side know that a win would see them overtake their opponents in the table.
