Chelsea winger joins West Ham

kemp16 year old Daniel Kemp has opted to join West Ham after leaving Chelsea’s youth set-up.

He has initially put pen-to-paper with the Hammers on a one-year scholarship and will sign a three-year pro deal next summer.

“I’m over the moon to have signed for West Ham. It’s a great club and I can really see a good pathway and a positive culture here,” he told WHUFC.com “Today is a very proud day for myself but also my Dad, Mum and Sister. All I look to do is make them happy. Speaking to Academy manager Terry Westley, it sounds like they’ve been watching me for a couple of years. It was about trying to find the right time to move, now I’m here I’m so pleased and really looking forward to my future. I’ve been to the Boleyn Ground a couple of times to watch games, it’s a fantastic stadium, it’s not the biggest but it has a great atmosphere.”

Kemp is expected to join the Academy Under-18 side.

  1. A lefty – what’s not to like!

    Sensible move,.
