Morgan Amalfitano hopes to convince manager Sam Allardyce that he is worthy of a long-term contract after making a promising start to his West Ham United career.

Morgan Amalfitano has admitted that he is hoping to earn a long-term contract at West Ham United.

The French midfielder joined on a 12-month deal from Marseille in the summer and has since scored two goals in six games to help the Hammers to fourth in the table.

The 29-year-old hopes that he can continue his good form and convince manager Sam Allardyce that he is worthy of a greater commitment.

Amalfitano told RMC: "I hope to contribute and to stay here. I never had any doubts about making this choice.

"I just had to prepare myself physically in line with what I did with Marseille. Then I could get back to my best.

"I'm adapting well and I hope it carries on this way in the future. But we can't rest because there is still a long road ahead."

Amalfitano made a name for himself in the Premier League during a loan spell at West Bromwich Albion last season.
