Over a month ago, Marca reported Roberto Jiménez was planning to rescind his contract with West Ham United so that he could return to Spain this summer.

The Hammers took the goalkeeper on a free transfer before the start of last season and offered him a two-year contract.

After spending the first half of the last campaign in the Premier League, David Moyes allowed the 34-year-old to join Alavés on loan in January.

AS now state the former Atlético Madrid keeper has already terminated his contract with West Ham.

Having returned to London from his loan spell at Alavés, Roberto was made aware he wouldn’t be included in David Moyes’ plans next season. After that, he made it a priority to return to Spain this summer.

It’s claimed the Spaniard will join Real Valladolid after rejecting other clubs, and his deal is expected to be made official soon.

The club, part-owned by Brazil legend Ronaldo, made Roberto’s signing a priority, with a hope that he could fight with Jordi Masip for a place in Valladolid’s starting XI.

He’s expected to sign a contract for several seasons with the La Liga side, which would see a drop in his wages when compared to the deal he had at the English club.

Roberto was left on the bench during West Ham’s friendly win over Wycombe on Tuesday.
