The 32-year old midfielder has finished his 18-month contract with the Hammers and is now on the hunt for a new club.
He spent time on loan with French club Lille in 2011/12 before returning to West Ham in January last year.
"I'm a free agent now and I'm looking for a new club," he told talkSPORT.
"My relationship with West Ham is great, but obviously it didn't work towards the end of this season and I didn't play enough.
"So, I'm just going to take my time over the summer and find the right fit.
"At this stage of my career, finances are not important for me. I want to enjoy my football, I want to compete and I just want to play more."
