Luis Boa Morte has revealed that he wants to end his playing career in Portugal.
The winger, who has one year of his four year contract at West Ham remaining insisted that he wants to stay in London in order to see out the final year of his contract - but intends returning home thereafter.
"I thought I should stay [at West Ham] and fight for my place," Boa Morte told Desporto. "But I still intend to play abroad.
"I have one more year at West Ham and then two more after that. Where I play those two years, assuming all goes well, we will see.
"But I intend to finish in Portugal. I would love to play at least one year at Belenenses; I also like Setubal and Guimaraes."
The Portuguese midfielder has enjoyed something of a renaissance in recent months with an excellent second half to the 2008/09 season.
However with Gianfranco Zola pursuing Inter midfielders Jimenez and Mancini it seems that a reserve spot is the best Boa Morte can hope for at the Boleyn next season.
