Stephen Hendrie has been released by West Ham United after failing to make an impact in East London, according to The Daily Mail.

Stephen Hendrie was tipped for big things when West Ham won the race to sign him in 2015, snapping him up from Hamilton Academical on a pre-contract agreement.

When the Scotsman arrived, he found himself behind West Ham’s Hammer of the Year Aaron Cresswell in the pecking order to play at left back.

Hendrie failed to make a single senior appearance in that season for the Irons and was loaned out to Southend for one month, where he scored his only senior goal to date.

With chances very scarce at West Ham, the Scotland under-21 international opted to join Championship outfit Blackburn Rovers on a season-long loan deal for the 2016/17 season.

However, Hendrie failed to make an impact at Ewood Park either and featured just eight times in all competitions as Blackburn were relegated to the third tier.

With the good form of Arthur Masuaku and England international Aaron Cresswell ahead of him in the fight to start at left back, Hendrie has decided it is time to move on.

The 22-year-old has been released by West Ham by mutual consent as he aims to reignite his career elsewhere.
