Aston Villa winger Moustapha Hadji has rejected a two month loan spell at West Ham, it has been revealed.
The 31-year-old Moroccan right-winger turned down the opportunity to kick start his career at Upton Park, after the Hammers offered the former Coventry and Sporting player a two month loan deal.
Speaking in today's Birmingham Evening Mail, Hadji revealed:
"The move would have taken me up to the start of the transfer window but I would have only played a few games and then I'd be back - and what was the point of that?
"If it had been longer, I'd have thought about it but I know I am good enough to play for Villa.
"I've not had a chance and I feel really down. There is probably little chance of me playing even if I were to work hard and show all of my skills.
"It's really disappointing but I've got to try to stay optimistic for that one chance to come along, even if everything else is negative.
"I have to think positively and always think I will get back in. I still know I am good enough for the Premiership."
Not however according to Villa boss David O'Leary, who has given Hadji just one start in a Villa shirt this season.
