West Ham chairman David Gold has confirmed England goalkeeper Rob Green will leave the club this summer.
Green, 32, will be out of contract at the end of June and has not agreed new terms despite the Hammers' promotion back to the Barclays Premier League.
Former captain Matthew Upson left Upton Park as a free agent last year and Green is now set to follow suit having been linked with Tottenham, QPR, West Brom and Spanish side Malaga.
Gold wrote on Twitter: "Robert Green is a free agent he has chosen to move on. Matthew Upson did the same thing."
He added: "Nobody wants Rob to leave but nothing is for ever, he must do what is best for him and we must do what is best for us."
