Liam Lawrence has pledged his future to Portsmouth amid reports linking him with West Ham.

The midfielder has only just put pen to paper on his permanent switch from Stoke, yet he has already been linked with a £4million move to Upton Park.

"I've heard that has been going around. Somebody rang me up the other day and mentioned they'd read it somewhere. I'm just concentrating on things at the minute - it's just paper talk I think," Lawrence told The News.

"You never know - but I honestly do want to stay here and help this club to turn the corner."
