Straight-talking Javier ­Hernandez has no qualms about putting the record straight.

Yes, he did ask to leave West Ham last month.

Yes, he did consider offers from rival Premier League clubs.

Stuck on the bench with a place in Mexico’s World Cup squad this summer at stake, the former Manchester United striker feared he had little option.

West Ham’s no-nonsense fans — no strangers to calling it as they see it — will surely appreciate his disarming honesty.

Yet how quickly things change.

Denied an exit because of injury to Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho’s ­departure to Rennes, Hernandez is determined to give his all for David Moyes on the run-in to help keep the club away from the drop zone.
