The Colombia international linked up with the Hammers from Napoli in January on a deal which is due to run until the end of the season.

He has had to be patient in his pursuit of first-team opportunities, but made his first start in Sunday's 2-1 defeat to Liverpool.

The 27-year-old full-back offered enough during that contest to suggest that he may be worth keeping on, and Armero would welcome the opportunity to discuss a deal after this summer's World Cup.

He said in the Newham Recorder: "Firstly, I think of West Ham and give the maximum result here. It is normal that as we are getting close to the World Cup I like to keep pace and be in full capacity.

"I would like to have a good end so in the future I have a new contract with the team."

On his performance against Liverpool, which saw him keep Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge relatively quiet, Armero said: "It has been a while without playing, actually from the beginning.

"It has been very important for me to play. I think I fulfilled what I wanted to do against Liverpool and I hope I can carry on enjoying the opportunities."

He added on adapting his game to meet the demands of English football: "It is a new experience for me, but it is very good. I like it.

"It is very fast and exciting and I like how the crowd enjoy the games. I think it is thrilling and encouraging playing here and I enjoy it."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
