Hammers eye young defender

According to various reports, West Ham have been monitoring Derby County centre-back Eiran Cashin. Initially turned heads during the 2021/22 campaign amid Derby’s battle against relegation in the Championship. Cashin has continued to make a positive impact for the club and his development is being monitored by several clubs. If the Hammers are interested, it’s challenging to envision manager David Moyes advocating for this transfer.

Whilst Derby County maintains an interest in West Ham striker Divin Mubama, the potential transfer in the opposite direction is generating a blizzard of rumours.

The 22-year-old defender made 43 league appearances last season and has already played in 18 matches this season, missing only one League One game due to receiving five yellow cards. This puts him in good company with players like West Ham’s Edson Alvarez and Lucas Paqueta.

Premier League clubs Brighton and Hove Albion, Crystal Palace, and West Ham United have expressed interest in him, and Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder is also keen on the player.

Born in England, Cashin has represented Ireland at youth level.
