West Ham United fans have taken to Twitter to voice their desire to see Nathan Holland promoted to the first-team after he bagged the winner for the U23s against Valencia ‘B’ on Wednesday.
Holland with the opener!
Ashby turns brilliantly in defence, passes it to Lewis, and his through-ball finds our left-winger goal-side of the defender; it’s a calm, composed finish, and we’re 1-0 up!#COYI (1-0) 8 pic.twitter.com/Ga444XKlGr

The young Hammers maintained their unbeaten start to the season after the victory over the Spanish side and with Holland continuing to impress, fans have decided it is time for the 21-year-old to step up to the senior squad.
Holland has been with West Ham since 2017 when he left Everton to move to east London and the Englishman has since scored eight goals and bagged 11 assists in the club’s development leagues (as per Transfermarkt).
Manuel Pellegrini has been keeping a close eye on the youth product (Football Insider claim the boss blocked a loan move and the midfielder did enough to convince him he was in the first-team) after he was included in the pre-season trip to Switzerland and has joined the first-team on a number of occasions for training.
Here’s what they had to say…
He’s such a talent 👍🏻
