Indonesia striker completes Hammers trial
19-year-old Ezra Walian has completed his trial with West Ham. The youngster can play as a central striker or on either wing and is a free agent after his contract ran out at the end of June. He scored 11 goals in 22 games for Jong Ajax last season.
Born in Amsterdam, Walian represented Holland at U19 level but is now an Indonesia international and has also been invited to Bolton Wanderers and Hull City for a trial.
Reports from Indonesia say Ezra say he is due to train with the Indonesia U-22 squad in Karawaci this afternoon with his manager saying the naturalized Indonesian attacker had just arrived in Jakarta on Thursday morning.
Whether Erza will be offered a contract for the West Ham Academy remains unclear at this stage.
