Insider: There will be more West Ham departures this summer

By Harvey Byrne

West Ham will allow more than just Reece Bruke to leave the youth team this summer, according to a club insider.

The Hammers 20-year-old is being heavily linked with a move to Championship side Bolton, which will seem him link back up with manager Phil Parkinson, who he had previously starred under during his time at Bradford in the 2015-16 campaign.

Now, while West Ham have also already let the highly rated Reece Oxford leave temporarily for Borussia Monchengladbach, well known in the know ‘ExWHUemployee’ has reported on his personal Twitter account on Saturday that there will be more youngsters departing this summer.

Last summer alone West Ham allowed the likes of Burke, Oxford, Doneil Henry, Josh Cullen and Stephen Hendrie leave their team on a temporary basis.

It is likely that they will now look to do the same again this time around with co-owner David Gold expressing that it is hard for youngsters to see first team football in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, players like Burke will look to take these loan opportunities as a way to showcase their talents and try and break into the senior side in the future, or even to put themselves in the shop window.

In other West Ham transfer news, the Hammers are keen to sign this 22-year-old centre-back from London rivals.
