Ilan: Putting future on hold
West Ham striker Ilan wants to help the club retain their top-flight status before worrying about his long-term future.
The 29-year-old Brazilian has proved a shrewd capture for manager Gianfranco Zola with three league goals in seven appearances.
The former St Etienne striker has scored in both the club's last two matches, including their leveller at Everton and crucial winner against Sunderland.
Ilan believes momentum is now on the Hammers' side and he is keen to continue to aid the club's quest to avoid relegation.
Once West Ham are safe and have another season of Premier League football under their belt then he will sit down and discuss new terms.
"We've produced a good performance at Everton and got a home victory," he told the club's official website.
"We've got some momentum, we're more together, more confident about getting out of this situation
"I will do everything I can to help West Ham and then when the season is over we will sit down and talk about the future."
