Javier Hernandez has agreed to lower his salary demands to push for a move to Valencia, but West Ham are reluctant to let him go in this month's transfer window.

Valencia are keen on securing the services of Hernandez this month after deciding to cut short Michy Batshuayi’s loan stint at the Mestalla this term.

However, West Ham are aiming to play hardball with the Spanish outfit, who have already been rebuffed after enquiry over a loan deal, as they aim to keep the striker at least until the end of the season.

Hernandez, who joined West Ham from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2017, has though told Valencia he will lower his salary demands to smooth a deal, reaching an agreement in principle, according to Spanish daily Marca.

The Mexican has clocked just 720 minutes of playing time in the Premier League so far this season and is willing to move to Valencia.

Despite maintaining that Hernandez is not up for sale, it has been claimed that West Ham could listen to an offer if Valencia put forward a bid that meets their valuation of the player.

The 30-year-old has a contract at the London Stadium that runs until 2020.

Hernandez, who is currently nursing a back injury, could be available for selection against Bournemouth on Saturday in the Premier League.
