The Mexico worldwide said the lure of playing in the Premier League was too much to resist.

"West Ham showed a lot of confidence and trust in me and thankfully I'm here".

The Mexico global signed for the Hammers from Bayer Leverkusen earlier this week in a deal believed to be worth around £16m on a three-year contract.

However, Chicharito recently completed a €17.9 million switch to West Ham, returning the Premier League after a previous spell with Manchester United. Since then we stayed in contact and then when we saw this opportunity we both took it.

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has revealed that Javier Hernandez was on top of the list of players that he wanted to bring to the club this summer. They want to do it much better. "They have shown a lot of ambition and want to qualify for Europe again".

Javier Hernandez sounded confident that he can become the prolific goalscorer West Ham United need when he gave his first news conference on Friday since joining from Bayer Leverkusen. All the people around the world that have the time to speak about myself and about my qualities, the way I play or the good things I did in my old clubs or in my country.

"There were other options - one in Spain and two in Italy".

"But I'm defending other colours now".

"I am always motivated when a trainer like Mourinho speaks well about me".

"I had four very good years at my old club but I am at a new club now".

"I'm going back to my old club - my old house - and it's going to be very special", he added.

"I want to help my team get the three points and get the season off on the right foot".

"Hopefully I can have a very good season so that all the fans can be very happy".
