West Ham United midfielder Pablo Fornals says there's no doubts about the hunger and desire within the squad.

The Hammers are now doing the second leg of their preseason in France after last week at St Andrews in Scotland.

Fornals told the club's website: "I'm really pleased to be here [in Évian], it's a nice place with good weather and people came back really well just to keep fighting and to keep playing how we did in the last two seasons.

"I'm happy to be back, to be honest. It's always fun to see the family and spend time with the close family and I wanted to be as away from football as possible in Spain and I didn't touch the ball but, when it's more than two weeks, we need to feel the ball back at our feet and this sense, so I'm happy to be back!

"I have been preparing in Spain for a bit before I arrived it and it helped me out and I think all the work we are doing in pre-season is going to be felt and be better for the season.

"Sometimes it is hard and sometimes we are training two or three times per day, but we are going to need it and, as I say, it's better for us."

He added, "This is why us as players want to stay here, because we are growing a big West Ham and, for all of us, it's really good to be in one of the best moments of the Club and be part of the success.

"We know we're not in the Europa League this season, but we're in the Europa Conference League and we want to play as many games as possible and, to be honest, the final in the Conference League was a decent final [between Roma and Feyenoord] that could have been a game in the Champions, so it's not going to be easy at all."
