One team that has carefully gone about their business, and by all accounts has had a largely underrated window is West Ham United.

Here are all the confirmed transfers and departures for West Ham, with the club saying goodbye to a true legend, who can stand alongside the likes of Sir Bobby Moore and co.

When did the summer transfer window open?

The summer transfer window for Premier League and English Football League (EFL) clubs, as well as those in the Scottish leagues, opened on Friday, 10 June 2022.

When does the summer transfer window close?

Deadline Day is always dramatic, as clubs scramble to make their team strong as they will have to wait until 2023 before they can make transfers again.

Clubs in England will have to conclude their business and any transfer activity before the window closes.

The summer transfer window closed on Thursday, 1 September 2022 at 11pm.

Which players have left West Ham in the summer transfer window?

Ukrainian winger Andriy Yarmolenko departed the club on a free transfer to Al-Ain, with his time at the London Stadium hampered by injury, with flashes of brilliance shown on occasion.

Attacking full back Ryan Fredericks saw his time in east London also come to an end, as he departed for newly promoted side Bournemouth. The former Fulham defender was a solid asset, and filled in when needed.

David Martin also left, and was released at the end of the season. It was fairytale stuff not too long ago for the 36-year-old as he kept a clean sheet on his debut at Stamford Bridge.

And lastly, club legend Mark Noble ended his long association with the club, as he retired at the end of the season. Born just a stone’s throw away from the club in Canning Town, Noble was with the Hammers for 18 years, and made 472 appearances for the club.

Here are the full outgoings, including the fee received (if applicable)

  • Andriy Yarmolenko: Al-Ain - Free
  • Ryan Fredericks: Bournemouth - Free
  • Mark Noble: Retired
  • David Martin: Released
  • Issa Diop: Fulham, £16 million
  • Nikola Vlasic: Torino, Loan
