West Ham should speed up Nathan Trott contract talks

West Ham need to ramp up their attempts to tie down academy product Nathan Trott to a new contract.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Hammers goalkeeper still has 18 months left on his deal at the London Stadium and the club are trying to sort out a new contract.

But it’s understood that Premier League giants Manchester City and Manchester United are eyeing the 19-year-old, while Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig are also monitoring his situation.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side could face a transfer battle to keep hold of the teenager, which is why they need to fix his situation now and avoid a similar scenario that is ongoing with first teamer Declan Rice.

The shot-stopper clearly has huge potential given the quality of clubs circling for him and the London club need to keep him on their books, which is why a new deal would really secure his future.

He is getting regular minutes for West Ham’s Under-23s side, while he is also a fully pledged England Under-20 international.

West Ham are only a couple of injuries away from having Trott as their number one and he’s a rising star that needs to be locked down.
