West Ham owner David Gold has sent a message via social media to Andy Carroll and Adrian after the club announced that the paid will eave the club next month.
The Hammers confirmed from their official website that the duo would be released from the club once their contracts ended, alongside Samir Nasri and Toni Martinez.
The West Ham owner has taken to social media to thank the long-serving pair for their services to the club, following a combined 13 seasons of service between the two of them.
I can confirm Andy Carroll and Adrian will leave the Club on the 30th June. They have combined to provide 13 seasons of service, playing 292 first-team matches between them and providing some of the most memorable moments in recent Hammers history.

In a tweet posted from his personal Twitter account, Gold said: “I can confirm Andy Carroll and Adrian will leave the Club on the 30th June,
“They have combined to provide 13 seasons of service, playing 292 first-team matches between them and providing some of the most memorable moments in recent Hammers history,
“Good luck Adrian and Andy dg.”
It wasn’t anything unexpected when these two names were announced to be leaving the club later this summer, after only registering 19 appearances in all competitions between them this season, however that doesn’t mean that it was an easy decision to make for the Hammers’ owner. The duo have been fabulous servants of the club in recent years, but it’s safe to say that their time has rightly come to an end at the club, after failing to make an impact on the first team last season. For the Hammers’ fans however, it is refreshing to see that the owner is showing some compassion to the pair amid their eventual exit, and they will both no doubt find another club to play for should they be looking to continue playing at a top level. It has never really worked out at the London Stadium for the two, particularly Carroll, who has in truth been plagued with injuries since his arrival from Liverpool in 2013. Gold will be looking for their replacements as we speak, and speaking with Manuel Pellegrini about the potential in-comings this transfer window.
