Pablo Barrera: Leaves West Ham

The midfielder moved to the Hammers two years ago, but started just six Premier League games in 2010/11 before making two appearances at the start of the following season in the Championship and Carling Cup.

He was loaned out to Real Zaragoza for the rest of the 2011/12 campaign, with the Upton Park club stating that he had struggled to adapt to life in London, citing language difficulties and personal problems.

The 25-year-old international has returned to his home country after completing the deal that sees him join the side based at the Estadio Azul in the Mexican capital.
