Sayonara, Samir

Samir Nasri is set to leave West Ham imminently - having made a total of just six appearances for the club.

The former French international became Manuel Pellegrini's first signing of the last transfer window back in January, having spent some considerable time training with United whilst unable to play due to an earlier ban.

But his short spell at West Ham is all but over after he rejected a pay-as-you-play offer that would have extended his stay for another season.

Nasri made his debut for the Hammers in the 2-0 FA Cup third round win over Birmingham back in January, before featuring against Arsenal (1-0) and Bournemouth (0-2) in the same month.

He was to make just one appearance in February - in a 1-0 defeat away to former club Manchester City - before making his final two appearances in March against Cardiff (2-0) and Huddersfield (4-3).

Nasri was due to feature as a second half substitute against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last month, but sustained a calf injury during a half time warm-up.

According to reports elsewhere today (The Sun), Andy Carroll has also been offered a similar deal with his seven-year contract coming to an end this summer.

The regularly-injured striker is known to be keen to extend his stay at West Ham, having settled in the area and recently moved into a new family home.
