Make or break time for young Hammer

Scottish clubs Celtic and Rangers are reportedly keen on West Ham midfielder Marcus Browne according to Goal.com.

Browne who will join the West Ham first team for pre-season training camp in Switzerland will be assessed by Manuel Pellegrini and his backroom team before any decision to loan him out is made.

Crucially the Academy product who turned twenty-one in November last year is eligible for the Premier League homegrown rule and that could mean he is retained in the first team squad of twenty-five after the departure of homegrown players Andy Carroll and Moses Masaki

Browne had a successful loan spell at League One side Oxford where he scored eight goals in 42 appearances.

With a year left on his Hammers contract, this season it is make or break for the youngster.
