Steve Bruce's side open their Premier League campaign with a game at the London Stadium a week today.

Noble took to Twitter after West Ham, owned by David Sullivan and David Gold, sold 22-year-old winger Grady Diangana to West Bromwich Albion.

The long-serving midfielder tweeted: “As captain of this football club, I’m gutted, angry and sad that Grady has left. Great kid with a great future!”

In a statement, West Ham said: “The decision to sell Grady has been made reluctantly but – ultimately – in the best interests of the club, and with the aim to strengthen the squad in different areas at this time. The money received for Grady will be reinvested entirely in the team, in line with the manager's targets.”
