West Ham defender Aaron Cresswell has rejected talk of a potential transfer to Chelsea or Manchester City, insisting he is happy at Upton Park.

The former Ipswich Town defender has been in inspired form for the Hammers in his first Premier League season, making 32 appearances and scoring twice.

Manchester City are keen to sell ageing left-back Aleksandar Kolarov who has played a bit-part role since his move to the Etihad.

Meanwhile Felipe Luis’ Chelsea future is in doubt as the Brazilian has failed to dislodge Cesar Azpilicueta from the left-back berth all the season since his summer move from Atletico Madrid.

Cresswell has added appeal because he is English, and would help both clubs boost their number of homegrown players, a problem both sides need to address.

However, the 25-year-old full-back has distanced himself from any transfer speculation, insisting that he is ‘very happy’ at West Ham.

Happy at Upton Park

“Obviously it is nice to see things like that (being linked with Manchester City). But I have four years left on my West Ham contract and I’m very happy down here,” Cresswell is reported as saying in The Mirror.

“I don’t read into it or look into stuff like that. I just concentrate on doing my best for West Ham. I have still got four years left on my contract and it’s what I’m enjoying at the minute,” he added.

Seamless transition

Cresswell has made the transition from the Championship to the Premier League seamlessly, and the transfer speculation comes as no surprise.

If his good form continues, there could even be cause to select Cresswell in the England squad for the upcoming friendly against the Republic of Ireland in June.
