David Di Michele has made it clear that he would like to remain with West Ham for years to come.
The Italian striker has established himself as a key figure in Gianfranco Zola's side since moving to Upton Park on loan last summer.
He is set to return to Torino next season but he has never hidden his desire to stay with the Hammers.
Di Michele has now reiterated his stance, although he accepts that the final decision will be taken by the two clubs.
"As I have already said many times I would love to stay at West Ham for a few more years," Di Michele told the club's official website.
"I feel good at this club and I really hope Torino will let me stay here.
"But in football you never know what can happen and at this stage my desire can't make the difference.
"It is up to the two teams to find an agreement."
Di Michele has scored just four goals this season but he has made 27 appearances and is happy enough with his overall contribution.
He said: "It's has been a good season for me.
"Maybe I should have scored few more goals, but I am very satisfied because I played much more games than I expected.
"I am also surprised how well I settled down in London. My wife and my children as well, we could not have asked more."
