West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has announced Emanuel Pogatetz will leave the club.

Austria international Pogatetz joined from German side Wolfsburg during January's transfer window on a loan deal until the end of the season.

Allardyce said ahead of West Ham's final Barclays Premier League match at home to Reading on Sunday, according to the London club's Twitter account:

"We've already said to Pogatetz thanks very much, he's been a fantastic professional but it won't be extended, and we'll decide on the others after the game."
