West Ham confirm Jeremy Ngakia leaving

West Ham United have confirmed is leaving Jeremy Ngakia when his contract expires next week.

Pablo Zabaleta and Carlos Sanchez will also leave when their contracts expire next Tuesday.

Defender Zabaleta joined from Manchester City in 2017 and made 80 appearances for the club, though injury has prevented him being a part of West Ham's Project Restart plans and signing a short-term contract to take him until the end of the season.

Meanwhile, West Ham were unable to persuade academy product Ngakia to sign a new deal and he too will leave after his deal runs out on June 30.

Midfielder Sanchez has struggled to make an impact at the London Stadium after arriving in 2018 for £4m from Espanyol having suffered a serious knee injury which has restricted the Colombian to 18 appearances.
