The 23-year-old joined the Hammers on a season-long loan deal from Inter Milan last summer and has scored three goals in 21 matches in all competitions this season.

With Avram Grant's side struggling in the Premier League, Obinna has been mentioned as a target of several clubs this month, including Birmingham.

But although Obinna's agent has confirmed interest from three Serie A clubs, he expects him to see out the initial agreement with West Ham.

Daily contact

"I'm in daily contact with Inter Milan with regards to Obinna," Valentino Nerbini told

"So far in this transfer window, three clubs have come forward for him - Fiorentina, Bologna and Udinese.

"There has been some activity about the player but as it stands, he wants to remain there unless he receives a tempting offer from Italy.

"He is happy at West Ham so intends to stay there, as agreed, until June 2011. I can rule out Birmingham."
