West Ham announces end-of-season retained list, with Europa Conference League champion going… as Hammers offer star player last-ditch new contract

West Ham have revealed its end-of-season retained list for the 2023/2024 Premier League season, which includes the departure of Manuel Lanzini, whose contract ends on June 30.

The Argentine midfielder joined West Ham permanently in 2016 after excelling on loan from UAE club Al Jazira the previous season.

Lanzini made 226 appearances in all competitions with the Hammers over eight seasons, scoring 32 goals and being a member of the Europa Conference League winning club.

Despite being a frequent starter in past seasons, he has fallen out of favour in David Moyes’ squad and is no longer considered a long-term prospect.

‘On behalf of the players and coaching staff, I’d want to thank Manu and wish him all the best in the future,’ Moyes stated.

‘Manu has been a terrific servant to the football club and a fantastic player for me during my tenure as manager. He was vital in our survival throughout my first stint, and he has always been someone I can rely on.

‘Manu is a brilliant professional and a genuinely kind guy, and any team he joins will have a great player on their hands.

‘We’re sorry to see him depart, but he deserves to play more consistently elsewhere, and we wish him the best of luck on his future journey.’

The East Londoners have also stated that they have given Angelo Ogbonna a new contract to continue his eight-year tenure.

Meanwhile, development squad members Ademipo Odubeko, Armstrong Oko-Flex, and Brian Kinnear, as well as scholar Asher Falase, will depart London Stadium at the end of June.

Jamal Baptiste, a 19-year-old defender, is also poised to leave West Ham in the summer despite being given a new contract.

West Ham United has confirmed the departures of many players who will leave this summer as their contracts expire.

West Ham United has released its yearly list of players who will depart the London Stadium at the end of the 2021/22 season. The Hammers have confirmed the departure of four first-team players and six development squad members, whose contracts expire on June 30.

Andriy Yarmolenko, David Martin, Ryan Fredericks, and Mark Noble are all expected to depart east London in the coming weeks for pastures new, with the latter formally retiring after 18 seasons as a first-team player. Nathan Holland, Jayden Fevrier, Bernardo Rosa, Amadou Diallo, Ossama Ashley and scholar Isaac Evans will all also depart West Ham on June 30.

The Hammers recognized each and every player for their contributions to the club, presenting them with an overview of their most memorable moments in a West Ham shirt. The club statement that accompanied their announcement read: “West Ham United would like to thank all those players departing for their hard work and commitment during their careers in Claret and Blue and wish them the very best for their future careers.”

With three important first-team players leaving, Moyes is expected to have a busy summer transfer window. Noble appeared 550 times for the Hammers, directly contributing to 123 goals.

The 35-year-old earned two Hammer of the Year trophies, twice reached the Play-Off finals, and guided the club to Europe in his final two seasons in Claret and Blue. While the midfielder has featured more on the sidelines this season, Noble’s departure will be a huge loss for Moyes, as he will lose a leader in the dressing room.

Yarmolenko totalled 86 appearances after four seasons in east London, directly contributing towards 20 goals. The 32-year-old has scored some memorable goals during his time at West Ham, but none more so than in the wins over Aston Villa and Sevilla in March this year.

Fredericks featured 77 times for West Ham since arriving in 2018, directly contributing towards nine goals. He’s played a pivotal role in the Hammers’ success lately, with five appearances in the club’s run to this season’s UEFA Europa League semi-finals.

Martin joined West Ham in June 2019 and made an unforgettable debut for the Hammers in a 1-0 Premier League win at Chelsea in November of the same year. The 36-yer-old’s performance that day will go down in folklore among fans at the London Stadium.

And, as part of the rebuild, Moyes has already told David Sullivan, David Gold and Karren Brady that he should be granted with the reins this summer when making signings. Speaking to Sky Sports last month, the Scotsman insisted that he will always have the final say on signings.

“I still think the manager should have the final say,” Moyes said. “A lot of clubs have sporting directors, and as long as the manager works closely with them you can work on it and do it. But I always think a manager tends to lose their job by poor recruitment, ultimately.

“If you get a chance, if you get enough transfer windows, then you’re getting judged so you have to try to make your recruitment good. I see it as part of my daily job (planning transfers and recruitment).

“I don’t do it every single day, but there’s parts of the job where I have to be looking at the squad of players I have for the future, the young players I have at the club and what might be available outside as well.”
