Report: West Ham staff notice that 23-year-old has put on a lot of muscle in pre-season
West Ham United’s staff have noticed that Nathan Holland has put on a loan out muscle over the summer, the Athletic report.
Growing in stature
Holland was actually kept at West Ham all season last term, although he didn’t play a game.
The attacker is said to have interest from Championship sides, but he has featured prominently in pre-season for the Hammers.
And David Moyes has apparently no decided whether to keep Holland or allow him out on loan.
Either way, his physical progression can only stand him in good stead.
To stay or go?
The 23-year-old has been one of the more promising, young players to graduate from their academy in recent times.
Holland made an impact on a loan spell at Oxford United and has been given two first-team appearances for the Hammers in his career to date.
At his current age he is reaching a point where he needs to receive regular first-team football or move elsewhere, though.
And it could be that if he isn’t guaranteed some game time at West Ham, he has to seek alternative options
