Hammers hopeful will seize his oportunity

West Ham youngster Cristian Montano is linking up with Irons legend Paolo Di Canio at League Two club Swindon Town reports

The 19-year-old striker recently returned from a successful loan spell at League One Notts County, and moves to the County Ground on an initial one-month deal.

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce currently has a plethora of attacking options at Upton Park, and is keen for Montano to continue his development away from West Ham where he will have an opportunity for regular first-team action.

Montano is one of a number of West Ham youngsters currently plying their trade away from east London, and Di Canio was only too happy to take Montano on a short-term deal to help aid his promotion push with the Robins.


"I'm very happy with what I have achieved so far and obviously want to continue and get more first-team games under my belt," Montano told the club’s official website.

"The [Notts County] loan is probably the best thing I've done in football. I made my debut and scored some goals in League One, which is a good standard of football and only one division below West Ham.

"Playing under Martin Allen was crazy because he is mad. I enjoyed the experience, I'd have obviously liked to have got more starts, but now I'm aiming to get them in the future either at West Ham or somewhere else."
