West Ham United striker Enner Valencia is looking to add his goal tally in 2015 after racking up three, so far.

The Ecuadorian international just moved from Mexican side Pachuca last summer and is seemingly settling in great under Sam Allardyce.

He was on-target in Brazil, but just fell short of helping his national side go past the group stages.

"2014 has been a great year for me. I have been able to make the most of all the opportunities that have arisen," he told whufc.com.

"I scored three goals at the World Cup and played in some very exciting matches."

"I am very thankful that West Ham spotted me and that I am able to play for such a big Club."

"It's very special to play in the Premier League. I'd like to thank West Ham for giving that opportunity. I am really enjoying my time here. I am working very hard in training so I can perform to my best ability."

"I won the Ecuadorian title in 2013 with Emelec. My success there gave me the chance to move to a foreign team. I joined Pachuca. In six months there I scored 18 goals which was a great period for me."

"I'm working hard and I want to score a goal at home as soon as possible to thank all the fans for supporting me and making me feel welcome. I'm doing all I can to make sure West Ham stay near the top of the Premier League."

"We've suffered two painful losses recently and we've dropped down the table slightly. We know the game against West Brom is a very important one and we'll do our best to get the three points. We want to get 2015 started on the right foot and have a good rest of the season."

"I know that if I perform well I can help West Ham stay in the upper reaches of the table, so that is my main aim for next year."
