West Ham's new manager will have Europa League football to contend with after the club announced they have qualified through the fair play league.

Just days after the end of the season and news that Sam Allardyce is leaving, the Hammers have confirmed they have secured European qualification for the first time since the 2006/07 season.

The east Londoners finished top of the Barclays Premier League's Fair Play table and will be amongst 104 teams whose Europa League campaign begins with the first qualifying round on July 2.
