Nolan leaves the Magpies for West Ham

17th June 2011 - Berko Tau

Kevin Nolan has agreed to leave Newcastle United and play football games for West Ham.

The midfielder has left his position as Newcastle captain to join Sam Allardyce's team on a five-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

Speaking about the transfer, Nolan said: "It's been a bit of a whirlwind, but obviously once I knew that they wanted me, they have shown a certain hunger and desire to make sure I become a West Ham player."

He also noted that he was sad to leave Newcastle, but felt that linking up with his old boss Allardyce was a "massive thing".

Allardyce and Nolan previously worked together at Bolton, where the midfielder was team captain for four years.

Nolan has wide experience in English football and has made 436 career appearances.

Abdoulaye Faye was also signed by West Ham from Stoke City on a free transfer this week.
