Flocking to Twitter, many West Ham United fans have erupted over an official development involving young striker Ademipo Odubeko.
The 18-year-old, who has been on fire at youth level for the Hammers since the 2019/2020 campaign, certainly looks like a real prospect and one who could shine for manager David Moyes in years to come.
Odubeko has bagged a very impressive 26 strikes in 24 appearances across both West Ham’s Under-18s and Under-23s teams since he signed from Manchester United in 2019.
So far, the teenager has made just two senior appearances under Moyes but the club have now announced some big news regarding Odubeko, his playing time and future in east London.
As confirmed by West Ham, the Irishman has now penned a contract extension until 2023 and heads out on loan to Huddersfield Town for the remainder of 2021/2022.
Flocking to this development, which one fan called ‘fantastic news’, it’s clear to see why supporters are excited at the prospect of this young goalscorer getting game in the short-term time whilst also committing himself to the club for the future.
