Kevin Nolan has left West Ham United by mutual consent, according to the Mirror.
The midfielder had been at Upton Park for four years, and was a mainstay under former manager Sam Allardyce but is now seeking a new challenge following the appointment of Slaven Bilic, who is looking to move the club in a different direction.
Since signing for the Hammers from Newcastle United in the summer of 2011, Nolan racked up over one hundred and fifty appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring thirty-one goals and was part of the squad that won promotion back to the Premier League in 2012.
He also had two-and-a-half years at Newcastle, after over a decade at Bolton Wanderers while internationally he has two caps for England’s U21s.
His last appearance for West Ham came as a substitute in last Saturday’s 4-3 defeat to Bournemouth – a result which has left the club in eleventh place.
