The £18million fee West Ham United paid Hull City for winger Jarrod Bowen last January is looking like “an absolute steal”, according to Danny Mills.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former England and Manchester City defender claimed the 24-year-old is a “typical David Moyes player”.
Bowen started his 17th game of the season on Saturday as the Hammers ran out 1-0 winners over Burnley at the London Stadium.
It was the winger’s 32nd appearance across all competitions since his move from east Yorkshire.
The Athletic‘s David Ornstein reports Bowen was handed a “significant” pay rise after playing his 30th game for the Hammers on New Year’s Day due to a clause in his contract.
After making his first two appearances in claret and blue from the bench, the former Hull star has dropped to the bench just once in the Premier League.
Asked by Football Insider for his assessment of Bowen’s performances for West Ham, Mills said: “I think he’s a really good player.
“He showed his quality in the Championship, his work rate as well.
“He’s a typical David Moyes player. Yes, he’s got great ability, he’s got great delivery and he’s going to get you some goals. But his work rate and his team effort is absolutely superb.
“When you look back now, £18million they paid for him, it’s an absolute steal, isn’t it?”
Bowen has scored five goals and provided seven assists in his 32 games for the Irons since his move last year.
At Hull, the Hereford academy graduate, 54 goals and contributed 14 assists in 131 apperances.
