Irons could ‘test water’ for winger – report

West Ham could table a January bid for Hull City star Keane Lewis-Potter, according to a new report.

The Hull Daily Mail reports that the Hammers have been keeping a close eye on Lewis-Potter’s performances as they look to draw up a shortlist of potential acquisitions, and could test the water in January.

The 20-year-old has impressed in the Championship in a struggling side, scoring four goals and laying on four assists in 22 games for the club.

Hull are currently 19th in the table, four points clear of the relegation zone.

And the report makes it clear that boss David Moyes is a big fan of Lewis-Potter and is now considering whether or not to launch a bid.

Hull have previously rejected a bid worth £8m from Brentford for Lewis-Potter.

It would be something of a surprise, given that he operates primarily as a winger, and we know that Moyes is desperate to sign both a central defender and a striker in the winter window.

But it’s one to keep an eye on; Moyes certainly has history of signing promising young Championship talents and moulding them into stars.
