Canada U23 international goalkeeper Adam Street has quit West Ham United to return home.
Street has had trials with Toronto FC and is now weighing up his options.
"I am trying to get my head around what to do in the future," he told whufc.com. "I went back to Toronto recently and all my family are there. I have been here six years and it feels strange to be saying goodbye. It is hard to go but this is the right decision for me. You never know what will happen but I have plenty of time to think about what's next.
"I have a lot of good memories. I have enjoyed working with [goalkeeping coach] Jerome John since I arrived and I am grateful to Tony Carr and Paul Heffer in the Academy. It has been a long time and Bob and Val [who run the Academy house] have been like my family. It is a difficult thing but this is what I have to do. I will keep in touch and will follow how the club does."
