The England under-19 international is on loan at Birmingham but returned to the club's training ground this week after undergoing keyhole surgery to repair a hernia problem.
He is enjoying his spell with the Blues where he believes he has learned a lot in his 13 appearances but he still wants to make it at Upton Park in the future and break into Sam Allardyce's side.
He told the club's website: "I think I can handle it in the Championship, so if I play football there or in the Premier League in the future, I feel I can play more at that level.
"It is my dream to play for West Ham and to start my next game for the club, but that's not my first aim. I want to focus on getting back from this injury and see where I am after that."
