EXCLUSIVE By Wayne Veysey

West Ham have terminated the contract of teenage forward Malyk Hamilton, according to the Football Association.

New documents registered with the governing body show that the winger, 18, had his deal with the club cancelled by mutual consent on 23 February.

There has been no announcement from West Ham about the exit of Hamilton, but paperwork on the official FA website shows that an agreement was reached last month for the Canadian to end his association with the east London outfit.

Hamilton still has a profile on the West Ham website, which states that he came to the club from his native Canada at the age of 10 for a trial before joining permanently at Under-12s level.

He has progressed through the ranks at the academy and signed a two-year scholarship with West Ham in the summer of 2016.
