Marshall looking at two Hammers options


Marshall looking at two Hammers options

Callum Marshall is being reported as possibly getting a  Premier League start ahead of a Championship move.
Marshall, along with fellow countryman Patrick Kelly, is on the verge of finalizing a new and extended contract with the Hammers, anticipating a loan move in January.
West Bromwich Albion are among the clubs interested in the talented youngster.  However, a setback in the form of a training ground injury to Michael Antonio – who is reported as possibly being out until February – has temporarily disrupted that possible loan move.
If Antonio’s absence does indeed extends beyond a few more weeks and the Irons fail to find new front loan signings Marshall could come into the first team frame.
The Northern Irish talent has  an impressive 16 goals in just 10 games in Premier League 2 this season.
Marshall’s chances of becoming a regular starter for Northern Ireland look set to improve regardless of a loan or otherwise if Moyes makes a decision on which way he intends to direct the youngster’s immediate future via first team opportunities or a loan.
