Despite only scoring once in 14 appearances for West Ham, Obinna has impressed this term, and he has admitted that he loves playing in the Premier League and wants to settle at a club after being loaned out several times in recent years.
"If West Ham want me then I'll speak to them because I am happy here and the Premier League is sensational," he was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
"I have been out on loan a lot in recent times and my desire is just to settle.
"I would like that to be here in England - even though I do not like the weather."
Obinna has also caught the eye of Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier, who is looking to rebuild his side after a poor start to the season.
