JaanaiA deal to bring Peterborough United’s 18 year old strike sensation Jaanai Gordon-Hutton to West Ham is likely to be rekindled in January.

The youngster was left heartbroken when a deal fell through after what most saw as a superb trial period at the club earlier in the year.

The powerful youngster  scored at under 18, Development Squad and first team friendly level and is a striker very much in the Sam Allardyce mould.

However, after Peterborough and the Irons believed they had a deal in the bag, it was scrapped and a revised offer was made which the League One club rejected.

However, Claretandhugh has learned exclusively that further talks are planned after fresh contact was made and that a deal is expected to be sorted out in January.
