Skysports.com understands Luis Boa Morte is set to move to Greek side Larissa after leaving West Ham by mutual consent.
The Portuguese midfielder had been at the Hammers since his £5m move from London rivals Fulham in January 2007 and made 109 appearances in claret and blue, scoring two goals.
The 33-year-old fought back from a serious knee injury in July 2009 but the two-year contract he signed 12 months ago has been terminated so he can pursue a new opportunity abroad.
Larissa is thought to be his destination with the Greek side managed by ex-Fulham and Coventry boss Chris Coleman.
Commenting on his departure from the Upton Park, Boa Morte said: "I am sad to leave West Ham as I have made a lot of friends here. It is also a sad day for me to leave playing football in England after 14 years.
"I am looking forward to a new challenge. It is never too late to try somewhere and something different.
"There are high and low memories - the low ones only make you stronger - now it is a fresh start for me."
