West Ham have parted company with former England goalkeeper Chris Woods as part of a backroom clear-out following the appointment of new manager Manuel Pellegrini.

Goalkeeping coach Woods has left, along with head of medical services Gary Lewin, club doctor Ian Beasley and head of fitness Nick Davies.

Earlier this week, Pellegrini signed a three-year contract to become David Moyes' successor.

Assistant coaches Alan Irvine, Stuart Pearce and Billy McKinlay also all left West Ham following Moyes' departure, allowing the new manager a clean slate.

The Chilean is expected to bring in his own backroom staff.

West Ham announced on their website: "Following the arrival of Manuel Pellegrini as manager, a restructuring of the coaching and backroom staff is currently under way, with several new appointments set to be confirmed in due course.

"The club would like to thank Chris, Gary, Ian and Nick for their excellent service and commitment. They leave with the club's gratitude and respect and West Ham United wish them all the very best in the future."
