West Ham want Chelsea starlet permanently

Published 1 Comments

West Ham United are eager to extend the trial of Chelsea starlet Walter Figueira, according to reports.

Sky Sports claims the Hammers have been impressed with the 17-year-old after an initial one-week spell at the club, scoring for the Upton Park outfit in a 2-0 U18s victory against Arsenal.

Whilst the player is unlikely to force his way into the plans of Sam Allardyce any time soon, West Ham are keen to take another look at the player and make his move permanent, according to the report.

Chelsea brought the player to the Stamford Bridge academy three years ago, signing for the Blues from Hampton & Richmond Borough.

However, Figueira featured only twice for the Chelsea reserves between 2010 and 2012, and failed to score last season for the Blues youth team.

Not in the plans of Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo, Figueira is out of contract in the summer in west London, and could make the capital switch if he impresses again at the weekend, when West Ham’s U18s take on West Brom.
