Moses Makasi has joined EFL League Two club Stevenage on loan until the end of the season. The 23-year-old midfielder links up with Dino Maamria’s squad and could make his debut for the Hertfordshire club in Saturday’s fixture with Crawley Town at Broadhall Way on Saturday.
Makasi, who captains West Ham United’s U23s, will hope to inspire Stevenage to rise from their current position of eleventh into the Play-Off places. The Academy of Football graduate enjoyed a loan spell with League One club Plymouth Argyle last season, scoring once in seven appearances to help the Pilgrims to a seventh-place finish.
Moses who is counted as one of West Ham’s seven homegrown players in the Hammers squad said
“I am very excited. It is another opportunity to showcase what I can do,” Makasi said. “I trained this morning, the lads were brilliant with me and I just can’t wait to get going on Saturday. It (Training) was very, very good to be fair. The lads were brilliant with me, welcoming. I scored a couple of goals so I am starting to feel good again.
“I am a box to box midfielder, I love a tackle, heading, I have energy. I just want to get out there and show the fans what I can do.
“The Manager said he needs a central midfielder with energy and legs and I thought ‘I can give you that’. Hopefully, I can get in the squad on Saturday to help out the team. I went out on loan to Plymouth last season and sadly tore my meniscus but now I am hungry and have that taste for more First Team football. I am in good form so hopefully, I can carry on here at Stevenage this season for our play-off push.”
