The 25-capped New Zealand international joined the Hammers from FC Midtjylland in the summer of 2010 for around £5.25 million (Eurosport).

The 32-year-old has made 223 appearances for West Ham, with 166 of those coming in the Premier League.

In those league games, Reid has racked up 242 tackles with an incredible success rate of 79%. He has also made 348 interceptions and 1,301 clearances (premierleague.com).

David Moyes allowed the veteran centre-back to leave the London Stadium on loan in January, when the Kiwi linked up with MLS side Sporting Kansas City.

Reid is still yet to make an appearance for the American side, however.

Football Insider claims that Reid’s time with West Ham is done, and he isn’t expected to play for the Hammers again.

The New Zealand international has been a great servant for West Ham. It will undoubtedly be sad to see the 32-year-old leave, but moving him on will 100% be the right call from Moyes this summer.

If West Ham are to make genuine progress, they must start signing young, durable and robust athletes.

Unfortunately for Reid, he just doesn’t fit into that category anymore.

And if he does leave the London Stadium, every single Hammers fans will be wishing him the very best for the next stage of his career.
