Academy graduate Ngakia, who debuted for West Ham in a 2–0 defeat by Liverpool in  January, has made five starts for David Moyes‘ side this year and was on the path to becoming a regular first-team member.

“Jeremy was offered significantly improved terms to reward his breakthrough into the first-team squad this year, along with further contractual enhancements linked to his future progress and success,” West Ham said in a statement.

“However, the player and his representatives declined to accept any of the offers, and also turned down a short-term extension until the end of the current season.”
