The loan committee, which will oversee loans and trials of Academy players is thought to consist of Mark Noble, Academy manager Kenny Brown, Academy coaches Mark  Phillips, Steve Potts, Mark Robson and Carlton Cole.

Last week Wycombe Wanderers announced the signing of midfielder Freddie Potts. The 19-year-old, who turns 20 in September, has joined the Chairboys on a season-long long from the Hammers.

Crawley have also signed West Ham prospect Kamarai Swyer on a season-long loan.

The 20-year-old has been with the Hammers since the age of eight and signed his first professional contract in 2020.

The attacking midfielder made his first-team debut against FCSB in the Europa Conference League last November.

He scored seven goals in 27 appearances for West Ham’s Under-21s last season, earning a new two-year contract.

Swyer was on the bench for Crawley in their friendly at Bromley the same day he signed.
