NOLBERTO Solano has turned down a lucrative offer from Major League Soccer in favour of remaining at West Ham next season.

The Peru international, who joined the club on a free transfer from Newcastle in August, revealed that he was approached by MLS outfit Toronto FC about a possible summer move.

But Solano has rejected the offer of teaming up with former Magpies assistant John Carver, who manages Toronto, in favour of signing a one-year contract extension at Upton Park.

"I'm under contract with West Ham," Solano said. "They have spoken to me regarding a one-year extension.

"The truth is I feel lucky to be up there in England where the football is currently improving.

"It's not a coincidence that English teams achieve important things in the Champions League. It shows the league has grown."

Solano admitted that he would consider leaving the Premier League for a spell in the United States at the end of his career, but for the next 18 months he remains firmly committed to West Ham.

"It would be interesting to finish my career in the US," he said. "I thank them to have thought of me, but it's not the right moment.
