West Ham’s Sam Westley has joined Dutch club VVV-Venlo on loan as part of a new partnership between the two clubs.

The 21-year-old, who is yet to make an appearance for the West Ham first team, will play for the Eerstedivisie club until the end of the season.

Defender Westley is the first player to move to VVV-Venlo since the formal partnership between the two clubs was announced last week.

The deal could involve a number of Hammers youngsters moving on loan to the Dutch outfit, and gaining valuable experience, with West Ham holding the first option on signing the best crop of players from the VVV-Venlo youth set-up.

  1. If you wanted to be serious with this initiative you would send a better player to make the right first impression. Wesley is only at the club because of his dad and is well below the standard compared to his teammates. They will see through this and drop the idea.
    Any club with any sense would also have sent two players to help them through the experience.

  2. And that’s your opinion, or is it something you read.

  3. No it’s mine. Please disagree, with why, if you want.

  4. Rugbyirons is the resident forums expert on the youth players.Still telling everyone Lee is going to be a Prem star i expect or comparing him to defoe,lmao,comedian.

  5. Haha,Rugby has to find a new hate figure.He lost Hippo & Nolan,it only left him with Brady.Seems now he has Westley to replace them.Whatever floats your boat i guess 😀

  6. Lol,Rugby & some others on Wetpants are on a Westley Witch hunt.The transfer window has shut so now they need something to moan about,lmao,one says something about Westley,then anothers light bulb flickers on then its a snowball effect,Westley is the devil in disguise 😀
