West Ham have cancelled forward Ricardo Vaz Te's contract with the club by mutual consent.

The 28-year-old signed for the Hammers in January 2012 and scored the winner in the Championship play-off final at Wembley in May that year.

Vaz Te has played just five games this season but said: "Everything I achieved here and all my game time and my life off the pitch has been amazing.

"I'll never forget that day at Wembley. It was so special for me and the fans."

He added: "That is the kind of moment you don't intend to forget. I'm very fortunate to have had that moment and I'm pleased I could do that for the fans, for the club and for my team-mates."
