Frederic Piquionne: Out of favour at West Ham and looking for a January move

The out of favour striker has been cast aside by Sam Allardyce this season, preventing him from taking in competitive action.

He has been allowed 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.

A January switch would appear to be on the cards, but the former Portsmouth and Doncaster Rovers forward says he will not be holding out for another club in England.

"Everyone knows that this year has been difficult for me at West Ham because I don't play at all," Piquionne told L'Equipe.

"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."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
