West Ham United Joint-Chairman David Sullivan clears up speculation surrounding the future of Manuel Lanzini

I would like to start by sending my condolences to the families who have been affected by the tragic events in Paris last Friday and everyone at West Ham United sends their best wishes.

The game between England and France on Tuesday night shows the strong solidarity there is in sport and I am sure all the fans will come together to pay their respects.

I know Slaven and the players will be working hard in training this week as we prepare for a big London derby against Tottenham on Sunday at White Hart Lane.

We have had some amazing results away from home this season against some of the biggest teams in the country and I am sure the fans would love to see us pick up another memorable victory this weekend.

I know there have been some reports in the media over the weekend surrounding the future of Manuel Lanzini.

We have an unbreakable option with both Lanzini and his club, so any other team's interest is irrelevant.

Manuel has been a fantastic signing for the Club and we all hope he can maintain this superb run of form for the rest of the season.

We had some positive news on Enner Valencia's injury and are hopeful he will be back in action at the start of the New Year.

Dimitri Payet also saw a specialist on Monday and does not surgery and will begin his rehabilitation programme immediately.

The injuries to both players are huge losses for the Club. We have a great squad, but Payet has been the star player of the season and he is bound to be missed.

We had good news with Alex Song playing his first competitive game against Crystal Palace last week in a behind-closed-doors friendly.

We need Alex back as soon as possible and if he can re-produce the form that he showed in the first half of last season, then we have a major player to come back into the first-team.

We need all our best players in action to accumulate as many points as we can.
