West Ham goalkeeper Adrian appeared to say goodbye to Hammers fans after Saturday’s win over Southampton.
Adrian was an unused substitute, as he has been for every Premier League game this season, but he took part in the lap of honour.
As captured by @westhamfootball on Twitter, the popular Spaniard waved goodbye to fans as he went around the London Stadium.

Adrian set for summer exit
West Ham and Adrian are set to part ways after six years of service. Adrian joined West Ham on a free transfer after leaving Real Betis and he has become a fan favourite.
The 32-year-old has racked up 150 appearances for the Irons. And his most memorable moment came when he scored a winning penalty in a shoot-out against Everton.
Over the last three seasons, Adrian has had to share goalkeeping duties rather than being the undisputed first-choice.
And in 2018/19, the arrival of Lukasz Fabianski has limited him to cup outings only. With his contract expiring this summer, an exit at the end of the season is inevitable.
Adrian paraded around the pitch with his team-mates and said his goodbyes to West Ham fans. After six successful seasons in East London, a return to Spain is most likely.
