Joe Cole is among three senior players to have left West Ham United, with the club having decided not to renew his contract, Sky Sports has reported.

This marks the end of the former England international’s second spell at Upton Park, having been signed from Liverpool in January 2013. Throughout his year and-a-half in East London, Cole failed to establish himself as a first-team regular, often left out of the starting line-up in favour of Stewart Downing and Matt Jarvis.


For George McCartney, it is also the end of his second spell at West Ham. After an initial loan spell from Sunderland, Sam Allardyce brought the left-sided defender back on a permanent basis in the summer of 2012, and has, like Cole, found himself in and out of the team.


Jack Collison completes the trio of senior players to have left the Hammers. The 25-year-old came through the club’s youth system, but has been out of favour since the club’s return to the Premier League. This season, he has had loan spells in the Championship with Bournemouth and Wigan Athletic.


A number of youth players have been additionally let go, but the club are in talks with midfielder Matt Taylor and veteran goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen over new contracts.
