West Ham United: Fans eager for Xande Silva to be used in the first team

West Ham United: Fans eager for Xande Silva to be used in the first team - West Ham

West Ham United striker Xande Silva is now back in contention for the under-23 side, that is according to @ExWHUemployee.

The 22-year-old joined the Hammers in 2018 from Vitoria Guimaraes, but as of yet his career at the London Stadium has failed to take off. Indeed, in his first season with the club he managed to play just 17 minutes of Premier League football, with his sole start coming in an FA Cup tie against Birmingham City (Transfermarkt).

Since then he has failed to make another appearance for the first team and this season he hasn’t even played any youth football after having emergency surgery in the summer to sort out a bowel obstruction (football.london).

It seems that he is now finally set for a return to action with the under-23’s, however some West Ham supporters feel that he should be thrown straight into the first team due to their problems in the striking department.

Sebastien Haller has been their regular frontman and has six Premier League goals to his name, although just two of those have come in his last 15 appearances (Transfermarkt). Their only other option has been Albian Ajeti, but he hasn’t been fancied by either Manuel Pellegrini or David Moyes and has been on the pitch for a total of 126 minutes in the league (Transfermarkt).

Given the lack of goals from Haller and Ajeti, these Hammers fans want to see Silva in the first team as soon as possible…
