Nathan Holland has signed a new contract with West Ham – and some of the club’s supporters are excited about the young prospect and are hopeful of a first-team breakthrough in the near future.
The Hammers have confirmed (official website) that the attacker has penned a new deal to keep him at the London Stadium until 2022.
He is a left-winger with immense potential and has been starring in the Under-23s side this season.
The 20-year-old joined West Ham back in 2017 and is someone from the youth ranks that is being tipped for a senior breakthrough.
Holland made his one senior appearance to date for the club back in 2017 in the Carabao Cup and has been an unused substitute in a few first-team games this season.
The dazzling wide man has quick feet with an eye for goal and could add some real dynamism in the final third.
Declan Rice has made a stunning step up to the first team this season after coming through the academy and he is a perfect role model.
Manager Manuel Pellegrini has proven he’s prepared to trust in younger talents if he feels they are ready and 20-year-old Rice has seized his opportunity.
Holland needs to try emulate in his footsteps and the encouragement of a new deal should help him.
Here are some West Ham fans thrilled with the Holland update:
Well in lad, looking forward to seeing you play in the future
