New deal on way for highly rated young star

West Ham are hoping that Under 23 keeper Nathan Trott may be able to fill the No 2 role to Adrian at the club next season.

The departure of Joe Hart – currently on around £120k a week at the Irons – will free up a minimum of around £90k in wages but should Trott inherit the No 2 jersey it could be even more.

Adrian is booked for a new contract at the club and 19 year old Trott has been in great form this season for the Under 23s and is widely recognised in the game  as a goalkeeping star of the future.

The Bermuda born keeper switched international allegiance to England in early 2017 and was part of the Young Lions squad that won the UEFA European U19 Championship in June of the same year.

His contract runs out this season but after getting top reviews the club are ready to offer him a new deal and the chance of first team football.

  1. A good positive move by West Ham . It’s important to build for the future , and by all accounts this Lad deserves the chance . It’s also a good way not to lose him to a bigger club .

  2. I still think they will sign a second senior keeper. Young keepers disappear as quick as they come. Like Bywater.
    I hope Trott goes on to be our first home produced 1st team keeper for a long time ( was it Merv the swerve? ), but he most likely still needs time.
