Hernandez focused on Leverkusen

Mexican striker Javier Hernandez says he is not looking to leave Bayer Leverkusen this month and is eager to rediscover his goalscoring touch.

The 28-year-old former Manchester United frontman enjoyed a superb first season with Leverkusen as he netted 26 goals in 43 appearances in all competitions.

No-one has tried to contact me or my agent.

However, he has found goals much harder to come by this term, with Hernandez having scored just seven times and having failed to find the net in his last 15 games.

Hernandez, though, says he has no plans to move on and has vowed to do everything he can to help his current club in the second half of the season.

He told Kicker magazine: "Jonas Boldt and Rudi Voeller (Leverkusen's team manager and sports director) have said nothing to me about other clubs.

"The only things I have heard are rumours. No-one has tried to contact me or my agent. I am happy here - my only interest is to stay here at Bayer Leverkusen."

Leverkusen are currently down in ninth place in the Bundesliga table, having won just one of their last six league games.

They can be backed at 11/4 to secure a top-four finish, with Hertha Berlin priced at 5/2 and Hoffenheim available at 11/4.

One man who has changed clubs is injury-jinxed Germany defender Holger Badstuber, who has left Bayern Munich to join Schalke on loan until the end of the season.

The 27-year-old had been linked with interest from several clubs in England, but opted instead to stay in Germany and try to gain regular first-team football in Gelsenkirchen.
