West Ham United winger Michail Antonio has insisted that he is focused on his job at the London Stadium despite the ongoing speculation over his future.



The 26-year-old has been in top form for the Hammers this term, and this has led to suggestions he could pursue a bigger challenge with Chelsea being among his suitors.

Antonio still has more than three years left on his previous deal inked last summer, and he is for now committed to the cause at West Ham rather than concentrating on any outside link.

"Right now, nothing is really happening on the contract talks," he told Sky Sports News. "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."

Antonio has netted eight goals for Slaven Bilic's side this season, but it is his versatility which has attracted recent interest from the Premier League leaders.
