West Ham United manager, Sam Allardyce, has confirmed that Winston Reid will be leaving the club in the Summer.
The centre-back has just six months left on his current deal, and in today’s press conference, The Hammers boss confirmed that it’s looking unlikely that a new deal will be signed.
Due to the Bosman Rule, Reid is now free to talk to any overseas club and can even agree a contract in principle before joining them in the Summer.
However, it’s Premier League sides, Manchester United and Arsenal that still remain interested in signing the New Zealand international, and both of them will be boosted with the news revealed by Allardyce today.
‘I don’t think there is a future here for Winston. His contract finishes on June 30,’ said the Hammers’ manager.
‘By the look of things, he is not going to stay here with us. He hasn’t said that he is going to sign and he hasn’t said that he won’t.
‘By the look of it at this moment in time he won’t be. From the managers I have been talking to about the situation, I’d say it’s very unlikely that Winston is going to sign for us based on what other people are saying to me.’
