At the end of last month, West Ham United confirmed Adrian is one of the players who will leave the club when his contract expires on June 30th.

The goalkeeper joined the Hammers from Real Betis in 2013 and after spending six seasons with the English capital club, he will leave them as a free agent in the summer transfer window.

Spanish newspaper Marca sat down for an interview with the 32-year-old and during the course of the chat, he was asked if the West Ham fans urged him to stay.

He said, “It is true that the fans encouraged me to continue, but my contract expires now and I think it is time to change clubs and keep growing.”

Adrian further went on to suggest he was discussing a new deal with West Ham at the start of the 2018/19 campaign.

“At the beginning of the season we sat down to negotiate for renewal, but no agreement was reached,” the keeper explained.

Adrian was a regular inclusion in the starting lineup, until Manuel Pellegrini arrived at the club.

The former Manchester City manager signed Łukasz Fabiański last summer and he was West Ham’s first choice keeper last season, forcing the Spaniard to feature in the cup competitions.
