Hernandez won’t rule out Leverkusen exit

Javier Hernandez says he's happy at Bayer 04 Leverkusen but won't rule out a move away from the club until the transfer window is well and truly shut.

The Mexico international was a revelation for Leverkusen last season as he fired in 17 goals from 28 appearances to catapult his team into the Champions League with a third-placed finish, behind Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

And despite seemingly having settled very quickly following his switch from Manchester United, Hernandez knows the reality is that things can change very quickly in the unpredictable world of top-flight football.

The 28-year-old striker joined Bayer on a three-year contract on transfer deadline day last year and has prompted speculation over his future with his recent form.

Hernandez told reporters in Austria where the team is in its final stages of preparation for the new season: "In the last two summers I was transferred on the last day, so you never know. I expected to stay in Madrid and in Manchester, but then I ended up here in Leverkusen.

"But now I'm happy to be part of this fantastic team. We're hungry and want to achieve a lot. I don't know if the rumours surrounding me are true or not. However, it motivates me that others want my services.

"I'm a professional. I'm wearing the Leverkusen shirt and I'm enjoying my stay here in Austria. You can never say what happens in the future. Right now I'm happy, I'm glad to be here."
