Former Hammer contract terminated in China

Former Hammer Jose Fonte has left Chinese club Dalian Yifang by mutual consent.

Fonte, who left West Ham to join the Chinese Super League side in February for £5.6m, says he would be keen on a return to the Premier League.

He made just seven appearances for Dalian Yifang before his contract was terminated despite featuring for Portugal in the World Cup.

The defender starred for Portugal at the World Cup in Russia, starting all four of their matches before they were knocked out by Uruguay in the round of 16. Fonte joined West Ham for a fee of £9.2m in January 2017 after seven years at Southampton.
