Following the end of the 2016/17 season, where West Ham finished in 11th spot, the club have announced their retained list on the official website.

One first team player has been released while West Ham confirm that their two loan players have returned to their parent clubs.

Gokhan Tore is set to return to Besiktas after a disappointing loan spell.

The Turkey international managed to pick up the first ever assist at the London Stadium with a deep cross to Michail Antonio but failed to make any further impact.

In early October, Tore suffered a season-ending injury after making eight appearances in all competitions.

Fellow loanee Jonathan Calleri has also returned to his parent club.

The Argentinian forward scored just one goal for West Ham – a deflected striker against Middlesbrough – despite establishing himself as a regular towards the end of the season.

Calleri returns to Deportivo Maldonado after finishing his loan spell.

West Ham have also released Alvaro Arbeloa.

The former Liverpool and Real Madrid defender, who has won the World Cup, the Champions League, the European Championships and many more, struggled to get any game time at West Ham.

After just 4 appearances for the Hammers, the Spaniard has been released alongside academy quartet Sam Howes (goalkeeper), Sam Westley (defender), Kyle Knoyle (defender) and Sam Ford (forward).
