Vaz Te hands in transfer request

West Ham striker Ricardo Vaz Te has handed in a transfer request, citing his frustration at being asked to change positions last season as a motivator behind his decision.

Cardiff and Crystal Palace are in the frame for the Portuguese player, with West Ham now reportedly open to offers after Vaz Te's public admission.

Thorne: Vaz Te dents optimism

In a statement released to Sky Sports, the disgruntled 26-year-old spoke of his anger at not being "appreciated" at Upton Park last season and says he is ready to find a new club.

"In my 10 years as a professional football player I have never submitted a transfer request nor issued a statement," Vaz Te said in the statement. "However, I am frustrated at West Ham United Football Club.

"Last season I was asked to change positions for the benefit of the team even though I had just scored 24 goals. The main objective was to finish top 10 in the Premier League and I followed my instructions to the best of my ability as the club always comes first. As a result even though I was injured for three months no other player made more assists than me and no other winger scored more goals than me.

"In addition, since I joined this football club on 31st January 2012 no other player has scored more goals than me in all official competitions to date. Statistics are evident to all, despite this, it has been made obvious to myself and my representatives that I am not in the manager's plans. Therefore it is with a heavy heart that I submit a transfer request and look to join a club where my approach to the game will be appreciated."
