West Ham have confirmed keeper Robert Green has decided to leave the club at the end of the season.
The England international has less than a month on his deal at Boleyn Ground and has decided to call it quits on his career at West Ham despite the fact that the Hammers have ensured promotion to the Premier League.
West Ham president David Gold has announced the news via his Twitter account.
“Rob Green is a free agent, he has chosen to move on. Matthew Upson did the same thing.
”Nobody wants Rob to leave but nothing is for ever, he must do what is best for him and we must do what is best for us.”
The 32-year-old started his professional career at Norwich City and spent seven years there before moving to Upton Park in 2006.
Green broke into England squad while playing for the Hammers, but could only amass 12 appearances for the national team since making his debut in 2005.
The 32-year-old made England’s squad for the European Championship after helping the Hammers return to the Premier League following just one season in the Championship.
