Six depart from West Ham United

Anna Moorhouse, Tessel Middag, Esmee de Graaf, Vyan Sampson, Ruesha Littlejohn and Olivia Smith will be playing their football elsewhere next season after it was announced that their contracts with West Ham United would not be renewed this summer.

Goalkeeper, Moorhouse along with midfielder Middag and winger De Graaf arrived ahead of the 2018/19 season from Arsenal, Manchester City and PEC Zwolle and all featured predominantly during the Hammers 2019/20 FA Women’s Super League campaign

Defender Sampson leaves after spending last season on loan at London City Lionesses, while left-sided fullback, Smith, heads out after initially arriving on a non-contact basis in January.

Striker Littlejohn appeared on four occasions for the Hammers after linking up with the east Londoners midway through the last campaign.
