Confirmed: West Ham terminate Ricardo Vaz Te's contract

Ricardo Vaz Te has left West Ham United by mutual consent.

West Ham United have confirmed on their official website that Ricardo Vaz Te’s contract has been cancelled by mutual consent.

The 28-year-old Portuguese winger-cum-forward has made 61 appearances for the Hammers, scoring 19 goals in that time. But recently he has struggled for game-time and he is now free to seek a new chance elsewhere.

West Ham are enjoying an outstanding campaign but Vaz Te has featured just five times in all competitions in that time, playing just 351 minutes of senior football.

His last action for Sam Allardyce’s side came when he appeared for just eight minutes in the 2-1 defeat to Everton earlier this season and more recently he has made the bench just four times in the last 11 games.

Given his age, Vaz Te still has time to find a club where his talent can be utilised effectively, and with a little luck there is no telling how successful he could be in the next few years.
