On loan West Ham defender Pablo Armero says that he is keen to make his season-long stay at Upton Park from Napoli a permanent one this summer.

The Colombian left-back joined the Hammers during January as a part of Sam Alladyce’s late transfer plans.

He has since featured only a handful of times for the Irons, but his displays have illustrated his abilities both defensively and offensively.

There has already been talk of West Ham exploring the possibility of keeping the 27-year-old, and Armero himself says that he would be more than happy to commit to the London club:

“I want to finish the season well here so that I can guarantee myself a new deal with West Ham. I want to stay here,” he is quoted by talkSPORT.

“The priority for me is to give my best in the West Ham shirt. With the World Cup being so close it’s normal for a player to want to keep his form up heading into the summer.”

Armero started for West Ham on Sunday against Liverpool, and performed well as his side slipped to a narrow 2-1 defeat at the hands of the league leaders.

The pacey and powerful enforcer has long been talked about as one of European football’s top full-backs after impressing in Serie A with Udinese.
