Ryan Fredericks

With Ben Johnson and Harrison Ashby coming out of the academy and showing signs of real promise it’s time for Fredericks to move on. Vladimir Coufal is the first choice right-back and has been a consistent performer throughout his time at West Ham. There is no doubting Fredericks’ ability, at times under Moyes he has performed well but injury problems have prevented him nailing down the right-back position. He could leave in January. LEAVE

Angelo Ogbonna

The Italian has been fantastic in defence for a number of years and has to be one of the most underrated centre-backs in the Premier League. Ogbonna was just forming a solid partnership with Kurt Zouma when he picked up an ACL injury that could leave him out for the rest of the season. A new centre-back is needed however, a deal is supposedly on the table for Ogbonna and on his return he can still be a capable back-up despite his age. KEEP

Alex Kral 

Life at the London Stadium for the Czech midfielder hasn’t really got going, you can read more about what kind of player he is here as we haven’t seen much of him. Kral seems a little wasteful on the ball but certainly effective out of possession via tackling and pressuring the opposition. Moyes normally integrates players in slowly, he needs a big second half of the season because as of yet we haven’t seen enough to even judge. NEEDS MORE TIME

Mark Noble 

The club captain and West Ham legend is retiring. It’s going to be an emotional goodbye but I’m sure he will remain at the club in some capacity, he is believed to have a big influence over the young players and he could perhaps work in the academy. He has performed well in Europa League matches this season which makes his retirement harder to come to terms with. RETIRING

Andriy Yarmolenko

It’s surely time for the Ukrainian winger to leave. Injuries have ruined his time at West Ham despite showing brief moments of quality and being a useful squad player to get us through the Europa League group stage. However, he has been deemed lazy by some fans. He could be kept for squad depth or sold in January if a good offer comes in. LEAVE
