Irons miss out on youngster

West Ham have missed out on the signing of Kai Kennedy from Rangers.

According to The Courier in Scotland, Kennedy will be staying in Scotland, as he has agreed to join Dunfermline on a season-long loan.

The Daily Mail had reported earlier this week that the Hammers made a £600,000 bid to sign the winger permanently, but saw it rejected by the Scottish champions.

Kennedy operates primarily as a left winger and is a Scotland U19 international, but he has made just one appearance for Steven Gerrard’s side.

He has been on loan twice before, going to Inverness Caledonian Thistle first and then Raith Rovers last season.

During his time at Raith, he made 19 appearances and scored once, while also laying on four assists.

West Ham could revisit the deal in January, though, as The Courier claims that Rangers have the option to recall him in January if they receive an acceptable bid.

He would likely have only gone into the U23 side with the Irons but they are likely to keep tabs on him during his loan spell.
