Freddie Ljungberg's agent has rejected reports suggesting West Ham were planning to pay-off the player to let him to leave the club.

Reports earlier this week claimed West Ham were ready to cut their losses on Ljungberg by paying him up the remainder of his three-year contract as they look to trim their wage bill.

Ljungberg, who joined West Ham from Arsenal last summer, has seen his progress at the club hampered by a series of injuries this season.

The 31-year-old, who is currently recovering from a broken rib injury, has made 25 league appearances for West Ham this season - scoring two goals.

Ljunberg's agent Claes Elefalk has rejected the rumours and says he is committed to West Ham.

"This story is complete nonsense, there is no truth in it," Elefalk told skysports.com.

"Freddie is not thinking of leaving West Ham.

"Scott Duxbury [West Ham chief executive] called myself yesterday and said he was sorry such nonsense appeared in the paper.

"Contrary to what has been said Freddie is enjoying his football as much as he has ever done.

"He feels at home at Upton Park, with the team and with the fans.

"Freddie is already thinking of next season and helping to bring West Ham to Europe."
