Republic of Ireland internationals Leanne Kiernan and Courtney Brosnan have been released by Women's Super League outfit West Ham United.

In total the Hammers have confirmed that eight players will not be retained for next season.

Cavan native Kiernan, 22, joined the London club from Shelbourne in 2018. She's endured an injury-hit campaign that has limited her involvement both with West Ham and Ireland.

American-born goalkeeper Brosnan, 25, went to West Ham from Le Havre in 2019. She's produced some impressive performances between the sticks this season and started for Ireland in their 1-0 friendly defeat to Belgium a month ago.

Boss Olli Harder said: "I'd like to put on record my thanks to those players that will be leaving us this summer.

"It’s been a challenging period for everyone at the football club as we battled relegation, but we achieved that aim and I’m thankful for that.

"We now say goodbye to a number of players, some of whom have been here since the team turned professional back in 2018.

"We have a big summer ahead of us as we look to take the next step forward in the evolution of this club."
