West Ham after enduring a ‘difficult’ year at Upton Park.

The striker has been cast aside by Sam Allardyce and has yet to play a competitive fixture this season.

The 34-year-old has been given permission to link up with Martinique for the Caribbean Cup of Nations, but he is eager to kick-start his club career in the New Year.

Piquionne has played for Portsmouth, Doncaster Rovers and the Hammers, scoring a total of 24 goals, and the forward has indicated this could be the end to his three-and-a-half years in England.

“Everyone knows that this year has been difficult for me at West Ham because I don’t play at all,” he told Sky Sports News.

“My objective now is not necessarily to stay in England. I just want to play football and be competitive.

“I believe I still have plenty of years left in me. I started professional football quite late and I haven’t suffered any serious injuries. I am keen to compete both physically and mentally.

“I want to find a challenge and show what I can do.”

Piquionne was a prominent figure in the Hammers’ promotion push from the Championship last season, making 21 appearances. But he fell out of favour and was loaned out to eventually-relegated Doncaster Rovers.

Since returning to the Boleyn Ground this season, he has not kicked a ball, with Allardyce preferring Andy Carroll and Carlton Cole as the lone centre-forward in his 4-2-3-1 formation.
