Defender Manuel da Costa has left West Ham and joined Lokomotiv Moscow for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old, who had one year to run on his Upton Park contract, spent two seasons in East London, scoring four times in 35 appearances.

Among his team-mates in Moscow will be Victor Obinna, who spent last term on loan at West Ham from Inter Milan.

The Hammers, who suffered relegation from the Premier League last season, claimed that the former Fiorentina, Nancy and PSV man was keen to move on.

A statement on the club's official website read: "West Ham United can confirm that Manuel da Costa has joined Russian Premier League club FC Lokomotiv Moscow.

"The club would like to than Manuel for his efforts and wish him all the best in the future."
