Victor Obinna has reassured West Ham he could join them permanently if the right deal is on the table, amid reported interest from Aston Villa.
The Inter Milan forward is currently at Upton Park on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent move at the conclusion of the campaign.
While West Ham have struggled at the wrong end of the table Obinna has caught the eye with a series of dynamic displays down the left flank.
If reports are to be believed Villa boss Gerard Houllier is monitoring the situation but Obinna, who spent last year at Malaga, is ready to settle down in East London.
"If West Ham want me then I'll speak to them because I am happy here and the Premier League is sensational," he said.
"I have been out on loan a lot in recent times and my desire is just to settle.
"I would like that to be here in England - even though I do not like the weather."
To date Obinna has made 14 league appearances for West Ham and scored one goal.
