This summer saw Spanish goalkeeper Adrian leave West Ham United after six years at the club. The 32-year-old has been a fan favourite at the club since joining from Real Betis in 2013.
Adrian went on to become West Ham’s number one stopper and even earned his first call-up to the Spanish national team in 2016.
However, first Joe Hart and then Lukasz Fabianski challenged his number one claim and this summer his contract expired at West Ham.
So what next for the popular goalkeeper?
Adrian has been speaking to Marca this week about his future. Whilst he appeared to rule out a move to former club Betis, it seems Adrian is fairly open to a switch anywhere in the world. Including England.
“We’re looking at options inside and outside of Europe. I wouldn’t mind a change whether that’s returning to Spain, going to Italy or even staying in the Premier League. I’ve enjoyed it a lot and I’ve adapted to the style of play.
“I can’t hide that it (Betis) is the team that I love, but right now it’s not an option because they have Pau [Lopez] and Joel [Robles] already.”
West Ham fans will undoubtedly wish Adrian all the best going forward. The 32-year-old has been a consummate professional during his time with the Hammers.
Despite losing his place as the starting stopper, he happily pushed for a place back in the first-team with no complaints. The toys certainly stayed in the pram.
It would certainly be rewarding to see Adrian remain in England, so West Ham fans could continue to monitor his career at close quarters.
However, wherever he ends up, he will seemingly always have the support of West Ham fans.
