Winston Reid has thanked West Ham United and its supporters, after the long-serving defender today brought to an end his 11-year career with the Hammers.

The Club can confirm it has reached an agreement with Reid for the New Zealand international to depart and allow him to pursue first-team football elsewhere.

The 33-year-old has been a loyal and dependable servant ever since signing in the summer of 2010, and has 222 first-team appearances at West Ham United – and, most memorably, the historic final goal at Boleyn Ground in the 3-2 win over Manchester United in May 2016 – to his name.

Take a look at some of his best moments in Claret and Blue above.
