West Ham are hoping the Martin Samuelsen will be ready to become a key member of the first team squad next season.
Although the teenager has years in front of him, his progress at Peterborough has excited the club, who believe he could well be ready to stake his claim next season.
Although the club won’t make any firm decisions until the summer, Samuelsen is seen as a massive part of the club’s future and they are ready to let him loose as soon as possible.
The Norwegian youngster was very exciting in the recent FA Cup replay between Posh and West Brom which was seen on national TV and the club will be offering him a new deal in the summer.
And ClaretandHugh was told: “We look at everything at the end of the season. We’d hope he could play for us next season or at worst just have a few months in the Championship as part of his development.”
Posh director of Football Barry Fry admits he has had several talks with David Sullivan about keeping the player but has had no positive feedback at this stage.
