West Ham will have to look elsewhere for additions in attack because Callum Wilson says he has no desire to depart Bournemouth.
Cherries boss Eddie Howe has confirmed the Hammers have seen a double-bid rejected for Wilson and winger Matt Ritchie.
It remains to be seen if Ritchie would consider a move to east London, but it seems as if West Ham will have to move on from Wilson as he has stressed he is fully committed to his current employers.
Â“I am a loyal person,” Wilson told the Daily Echo. “I am grateful to Bournemouth for giving me the opportunity to play at a high level in the Championship.
“We had a good season last year and got promoted and then I got my chance to play in the Premier League.
“I want to maintain that for as long as possible.”
The Hammers may now end their interest in Wilson but will continue their striker hunt regardless.
West Ham have been linked with a number of forwards in recent weeks; including brothers Andre and Jordan Ayew, of Swansea and Aston Villa respectively, Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette, highly-coveted Marseille man Michy Batshuayi and out-of-favour Liverpool frontman Christian Benteke.
