West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is expected to release seven players next week.

The London Evening Standard says none of the three players acquired on loan in January — Italian pair Marco Borriello and Antonio Nocerino and Colombian full-back Pablo Armero — will be offered terms to stay, while four players from the senior squad are set to go.

Midfielders Joe Cole and Jack Collison and full-back George McCartney are unlikely to be offered new deals when their contracts expire next month, while former France international Alou Diarra looks certain to leave Upton Park despite having a year to go on his current deal.
