Pellegrini was pleased by the fact his sides new signing former Arsenal and Man City midfielder Samir Nasri made his first appearance for West Ham after signing on a short term deal. Ex-Arsenal and Manchester City star Nasri is eligible to play again following an 18-month ban for a doping violation and he is set to debut for the Hammers.

Nevertheless, when asked if he expected to lose Carroll this month, Hammers boss Pellegrini said: "I don't think so".

Manuel Pellegrini does not expect West Ham to sell Andy Carroll this January.

"Samir is a very technical player and I am sure he will play in the same way as he did before". 'He knows that this is revenge for him, ' Pellegrini continued.

Garcia's versatility would be ideal for the Hammers having played predominantly as a defensive midfielder under Pellegrini during his previous spell in the Premier League with Manchester City, although the Chilean also often deployed him as a central defender when needed.

West Ham attacker Lucas Perez is reportedly on the radar of Spanish top-flight club Real Betis. He was a top player in the first year. He is just 31 years old so he can play four or five years more without any problems.

Andy Carroll and Mexican global Hernandez have also been sidelined with injuries this season, leaving boss Pellegrini with the dilemma of whether to spend in January or wait until the summer to bring in new additions. But mentally, he is another player with a lot of experience.

"I never had any doubt that Andy Carroll wants to stay here, he doesn't want to go anywhere".

Carroll's future remains uncertain as he turns 30 on Sunday and only has a contract until the end of the season.
