O'Brien hints at West Ham exit


Joey O'Brien says he may need to leave West Ham this January to have any chance of making Martin O'Neill's Euro 2016 squad.

The 29-year-old defender, who made the last of his five Ireland appearances in 2012, has not featured in Slaven Bilic's first team since the Hammers' Europa League campaign ended in July.

"The Euros are in the summer and they are a big deal as Ireland haven’t qualified for many championships," he said.

"I need to be playing games to try and get into the next squad for the friendlies. Then we can see what happens from there but I need to be playing. If the manager wants me to go on loan, I will look at that."

Bilic may want to keep O'Brien for the rest of the season following a serious knee injury to Carl Jenkinson, although the Hammers signed another defender, Sam Byram, from Leeds last week.

"Sam has come in with a big reputation," O’Brien told London24.com.

"It’s real hard luck for Carl getting the injury because I know from my own knee injuries that getting a serious one is hard to take."
