Herita departs

West Ham United have mutually agreed with Herita Ilunga to terminate his contract with immediate effect.

The defender moved to the Boleyn Ground on an initial season-long loan move on 3 September 2008, before making the switch permanent in the summer of 2009 for a fee of £3m. He made 73 appearances for the club in total, scoring three goals.

The club would like to thank Herita for his service and wish him well for the future.
