West Ham winger Dan Kemp has pleaded with the club for a move this month, Football Insider can reveal.
The diminutive wide man, 21, is keen to ignite his career by going out on loan for the second half of the campaign after making a huge impact for the Under-23s.
A West Ham source has told Football Insider that the club are looking at League Two clubs for Kemp to join after he rejected possible moves to non-league sides.
Kemp is convinced he needs regular senior football to take his game to a new level and that he has nothing else to prove at youth-team level.
The Hammers are weighing up whether to allow the attacker to go although they accept he needs toughening up against lower league defenders.
Capped by England at Under-20 level, Kemp has been a mainstay of the Hammers’ successful development side.
He has scored 10 goals and supplied four assists from 17 matches for the team this season.
In total, the attacking starlet has made 72 appearances for the Irons’ Under-23s, which have yielded 22 goals and nine assists.
Kemp is now looking to seal a loan move to an EFL club just like fellow young guns Nathan Holland and Conor Coventry, who joined Oxford United and Lincoln City respectively last week.
Kemp has 18 months remaining on his West Ham contract after signing a new deal in the summer of 2018.
