West Ham United could be about to send one of their attacking talents to a different club following a difficult loan spell.
According to a report by Haugesund Avis, via TV2.no, Martin Samuelsen is set to leave VVV-Venlo and join Haugesund.
The 21-year-old has found it hard to break into the Eredivisie side, as he has spent more time on the substitutes bench rather than on the field.
The Hammers are not happy with how the player’s development is going and are believed to be preparing to send him back to Norway in the hope of getting regular minutes.
Samuelsen originally arrived at West Ham in 2015 from Manchester City, however, he has managed to play just two matches for them as he has been out on loan a number of times.
Having joined VVV-Venlo on a season-long loan, West Ham and Samuelsen would have been hoping to have had more opportunities than he was provided with.
Highly-regarded, the 21-year-old managed to make just 10 Eredivisie appearances and has played just one minute in his last eight matches for the club in the Dutch top-flight (via Transfermarkt).
A move to Haugesund could be great for the player to get his development back on track, as a return to the place of his birth may benefit him more than just being back on the field.
