West Ham have issued their annual retain List.

Manuel Lanzini will depart London Stadium when his contract expires on 30 June. Over his eight seasons in Claret and Blue, Lanzini made 226 appearances in all competitions and scored 32 goals – twice winning the Club’s Goal of the Season award, for his unforgettable last-gasp strike at Spurs in 2020/21 and then a superb volleyed finish at Crystal Palace the following campaign.

Angelo Ogbonna has been offered a new contract to extend his eight-year stay in east London after he recovered from major knee surgery to make 30 appearances in the 2022/23 season.

The list below also confirms both Aaron Cresswell and Lukasz Fabianski are retained having agreed short term extensions to their contracts which will due to expire in June.

Nikola Vlasic is also listed in the retained list indicating his permanent transfer has yet to go through.

West Ham Development squad players Ademipo Odubeko, Armstrong Oko-Flex and Brian Kinnear, along with scholar Asher Falase, will be departing the Club this summer. Defender Jamal Baptiste, 19, is also set to leave the Club on 30 June despite being offered a new contract.

Meanhwhile, scholars Ryan Battrum, Billy Bates, Sean Tarima and Mason Terry have all signed their first professional contracts with the Club.
