Journalist Mark Carlaw, editor of the West Ham Way website used by club insider ExWHUemployee, has been left excited as ‘fantastic news’ comes out if the club.
The Lowdown: Hammers set for busy summer…
Hammers boss David Moyes is seeking to build upon his side’s phenomenal rise up the Premier League over these last few seasons with new faces and upgrades to his squad.
As the first team remains a priority, Moyes has also been planning for the long-term and eyeing up moves for some of the country’s brightest young talents.
The Latest: Carlaw thrilled…
Which striker should West Ham sign?
Speaking on Twitter, Carlaw claims the signing of City’s former gem is an ‘unbelievable coup for the club’ – going on to call Rigge ‘one of the brightest young players in English football’.
He also states the England Under-16 international’s arrival is ‘fantastic news‘ as GSB secure a real sensation for West Ham.
The Verdict: Great news…
Rigge comes to Rush Green with a glowing reputation and is ‘widely considered’ to be a major emerging prospect.
The 16-year-old’s arrival on a scholarship contract could provide West Ham and Moyes with a possible superstar in years to come going by how in-demand he was across the nation.
Nine clubs cannot be wrong in their pursuit of Rigge and the Irons have done very well to beat them all to his signing.
