Davenport departs

West Ham United and Calum Davenport today agreed terms to mutually terminate his contract allowing him the opportunity to concentrate on securing a new club for next season.

Davenport thanked West Ham for their co-operation and expressed particular thanks to the medical and coaching staff for their assistance and hard work in aiding his recovery and his progress back to full fitness. He looks forward to resuming his career as soon as possible. Both parties have agreed that they do not wish to comment further on this matter.
