West Ham youngster Marcus Browne is currently thriving out on loan at Oxford United, but could he become a future first teamer?
The 20-year-old made a temporary switch to League One outfit Oxford United in the summer, where he is beginning to really show his true qualities.
He is an attacking midfielder that has come through the ranks with the Hammers and was sent on a season-long loan by Manuel Pellegrini to develop his game.
Browne has now made 19 senior appearances across all competitions for Oxford, scoring six goals and supplying three assist in return.
The English playmaker scored twice on Tuesday night in a 4-2 win over Rochdale and is becoming a key first teamer at Oxford.
West Ham are always keen to promote youth at the London Stadium and Browne will surely be on the first-team radar if he keeps up his current form over the course of the season in England’s third-tier.
He is a versatile ace that can play in an advanced role behind the striker, or also be deployed on either wing.
Declan Rice is the most recent West Ham academy graduate to cement themselves as a first teamer and is currently playing a vital role in Pellegrini’s team this campaign.
Grady Diangana is another youngster from the ranks getting several senior chances this term and Brown will hope he can step into those shoes next season.
