Zabaleta set to quit Premier League 

West Ham United defender Pablo Zabaleta has revealed the coming season will be his last in English football. 

The former Manchester City defender’s contract with the Hammers is set to expire at the end of next season and will not be keen on extending his stay. 

"I don't know, honestly," he said when asked about his plans beyond next year. 

“This will definitely be my last season in England, for sure. This is something I know, but I don't know in football, and I don't think this is the right time to be thinking [about it] when we have a long season ahead.

"I will try to enjoy it because I have been in the Premier League for so long and I'll miss it, for sure, the moment I will leave, but for the moment I am focused on getting 100 percent fit in this pre-season and I want to play as much as I can."

"The reason I am here is that I'm still enjoying my football and, of course, the manager was one of the reasons I chose to extend my contract. It's always good to work with a manager you know very well from previous years working together, and also because I think I can still give 100 percent for the team and use my experience.

The Argentine insists he doesn't know if he will retire when he leaves the Hammers after three years in London.
