West Ham striker Gianluca Scamacca has stated his is very happy at the club now being back from injury as he looks to help out Hammers avoid relegation.

The Italian international has been absent for a number of weeks whilst recovering from a knee injury, which had seen the club in the meantime sign Danny Ings to aid the firepower shortage which has been a cause for concern.

There has been much speculation in recent weeks surrounding the long term future of Scamacca, with manager David Moyes making clear the efforts from the forward were not at the levels expected from the Scot and his back room team.

Those comments and recent omissions from the lineup has prompted talk that the Italy hitman could soon be exiting East London, although the player has made it clear he is happy and wants to help his team survive the drop from the Premier League.

“I was out for a long time with an injury,” said the Irons number 7 to the club’s Official Website. “It was so stressful that I could not help my team, but now I’m fit and I’m very happy.”

The forward made special mention to the love he has received for the club, and stressed that he is happy to be at West Ham and is settled to life in London.

“The fans were amazing,” added Scamacca.” Like every time. They sent me a lot of messages, so I felt the love and I really appreciate it.

“I feel good, I’m happy to be here and play for this Club and live in London, so everything is good.”
