Martin Samuelsen has agreed a move from West Ham to Championship side Blackburn, it was announced on Thursday afternoon.

The Premier League team announced on their official club website that the 19-year-old midfielder has joined Blackburn on a season-long loan.

Samuelsen signed a new four-year contract with West Ham earlier this week which keeps him at the club until 2020.

His father Frode Samuelsen, hinted that the winger could exit the Hammers on loan this summer and he will now hope to prove himself in the Championship.

The dynamic teenager joined from Premier League giants Manchester City and has already made one international appearance for Norway, in a 3-2 win over Iceland.

Samuelsen made his senior West Ham bow before he earned a loan move to Peterborough last November, where he scored two goals in 20 appearances.

He will join his West Ham team-mate Stephen Hendrie on loan at Ewood Park for this season and work under the management of Owen Coyle.

Blackburn have endured a difficult start to this season and sit bottom of the Championship table after four games, and are the only team without a win so far.

Slaven Bilic will be hoping Samuelsen can continue his development away from the London Stadium and return to the first team next season.

In other West Ham transfer news, they have agreed terms with a star international striker.
