Barcelona ace Eidur Gudjohnsen has played down talk linking him with a move back to England.

New West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola is reported to be keen on bringing his former Chelsea team-mate to Upton Park.

Gudjohnsen's future at Barca has been the subject of constant speculation with the Icelandic international struggling to hold down a regular place in the side.

The 32-year-old admits he is unhappy that his ability has been questioned because of his failure to become a regular in the Barcelona starting XI.

"I am used to the rumours linking me with a move away from Barcelona but I never lose faith in my ability," said Gudjohnsen.

"It has been very difficult for me since I came from Chelsea, but all I can do is work hard and hope the manager picks me.

"I have been hurt by people who discussed my quality. At such a team as Barca when things are not going well they look for the guilty one and we have all been pointed out in the last few seasons."
