Darren Randolph departs

West Ham United can confirm Darren Randolph has joined AFC Bournemouth on a permanent transfer for an undisclosed fee.

The 35-year-old made 52 appearances for the Hammers across two spells, keeping 15 clean sheets, and kept goal in the 3-2 victory over Manchester United in the final game at the Boleyn Ground in May 2016.

The Republic of Ireland international initially joined West Ham in summer 2015 and spent two seasons in east London, playing 42 times and appearing for his country at UEFA Euro 2016, before joining Middlesbrough. He returned in January 2020 and has provided squad depth over the past three years, making a further ten appearances.

With just six months remaining on his contract and promising 22-year-old Joseph Anang returning from a loan spell at Derby County to provide cover for Łukasz Fabiański and Alphonse Areola, Randolph leaves for Bournemouth with the Club’s sincere thanks for his hard work and commitment and best wishes for his future career.
