The agent of West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez has said that his client is open to leaving the club this month, according to Sky Sports News.

Javier Hernandez’s agent has revealed that the Mexico international is disgruntled with his lack of playing time at The London Stadium and could leave just half a season after joining West Ham to get some game time before this summer’s World Cup.

The 29-year-old joined West Ham from Bayer Leverkusen for £16m this summer and has scored five goals in 21 outings for the East London outfit, including the equaliser in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Bournemouth.

However, since David Moyes has taken over from Slaven Bilic as West Ham manager, Hernandez has managed just one start in the Premier League.

West Ham are thought to be reluctant to sell Hernandez unless they get a big money offer.

This is because they want to offload Diafra Sakho this month and because Andy Carroll is out for up to four months with a fractured foot injury.

Hernandez is a proven goal scorer in the Premier League and West Ham beat a number of teams to his signature in the summer.

But if he is not going to get starts for the Hammers, he is prepared to leave this January.
