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."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
