Third-choice West Ham goalkeeper, Stephen Henderson, has left the club by mutual consent.

The 26-year-old gloveman had been behind Adrian and Jussi Jaaskelainen in the pecking-order at Upton Park.

Dublin-born Henderson joined the Hammers in March 2012 on an emergency loan deal from Portsmouth before making the move permanent in the summer.

Loaned out to Ipswich Town (twice) and Bournemouth since joining the Irons, Henderson has failed to make a Premier League start for the club, appearing just twice in the League Cup.

Henderson, who began his professional career at Bristol City, has been heavily-linked with a move to Championship side Charlton Athletic.
