Reo-Coker has been tipped to move to The Premiership in time following a series of promising displays for The Hammers.
Should West Ham fail to beat Preston North End in the Championship play-off final next Monday, it could hasten rumours of an exit from Upton Park.
But, while conceding he wants to play in the top flight, Reo-Coker will not press for a move away from The Hammers.
"I'm a West Ham player, that's all I know, and until I know anything different I'm a West Ham player for now through and through," Reo-Coker told Sky Sports News.
"Basically, every kid's dream is to play at the highest level but, at the end of the day, I'm signed to West Ham.
"If clubs are interested they can talk to West Ham United, it's nothing to do with me really.
"At the end of the day, I won't be sold to another club unless I'm performing well and doing the business on the pitch."
Reo-Coker joined The Hammers from Milton Keynes Dons in January 2004 and has been a key cog in Alan Pardew's machine.
He will be able to showcase his talents at The Millennium Stadium, live on Sky Sports 1, on Bank Holiday Monday but Reo-Coker is trying to downplay the importance of the game with Preston.
The 21-year-old added: "We're treating as much of a normal match day as possible."
