West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to react after the club announced that Winston Reid would be leaving, following a mutual agreement.

What’s the story?

Well, the popular centre-back’s 11-year stay in east London is now over.

Reid arrived at West Ham from FC Midtjylland in 2010, in a deal worth £5m.

The 33-year-old went on to become a big fan favourite, after scoring against Millwall and also netting the winner in the final game at Upton Park.

In fact, that’s an understatement. Reid achieved God-like status among West Ham fans for scoring that late header against Manchester United.

In total, the 25-cap New Zealand international made 223 appearances for the Hammers, scoring ten goals and providing ten assists.

Reid certainly left a legacy in east London – he won’t be forgotten quickly.

In our view, Sunday’s clash with Manchester United would’ve been the perfect way to wave Reid goodbye.

Of all the clubs, Manchester United were the ideal side following the centre-back’s iconic goal against them.

Sadly, it doesn’t seem as if the Irons have much place for sentiment under the current owners.

It doesn’t seem as if Reid will be given one either.

West Ham must find a way to celebrate their club icons, especially with Mark Noble’s departure on the horizon.
