Report: Hammer told he can leave

West Ham has been told Marcus Browne he can leave this summer according to Peter O’Rourke writing for Football Insider.

The 21-year-old enjoyed a successful season on loan at Oxford United last term, scoring nine goals and creating five assists for the League One club but is unlikely to break into the first team anytime soon under Manuel Pellegrini.

The attacking midfielder joined West ham at the age of eight. A skilful player capable of playing across the forward line, Browne made his senior debut for West Ham United as a substitute in the UEFA Europa League Play-Off round draw at Romanian side Astra Giurgiu in August 2016. Browne has also spent time on loan at Wigan Athletic.

Last summer he travelled with the first-team squad for pre-season training and appeared in the 3-2 defeat by FC Winterthur in Austria on 8 July 2018. Celtic, Rangers and Fulham have all been touted having following the youngster and could make a bid for the Academy attacker who has a contract with the Hammers for another 12 months.

  1. Hoped he’d make it

  2. All I keep hearing is should we or shouldn’t we.

    We spend a lot of money paying someone to make these decisions, so relax, sit back, and let the daddy make the decisions. MP is in control !

  3. I rate Browne and I would of though he could be an option.
    He’s better than Diangana who got lucky,he’s stronger and scores more.
    Wuld like to seem retained and both Holland and Diangana go out on loan after the League Cup games

  4. It’s frustrating not to get to see these young players given an opportunity in the first team before being cast aside. Diangana got that chance and initially grabbed it. Since then, I think he’s looked far too light weight to succeed. While he has some skill, too often he doesn’t make anything happen. I’d like to have the opportunity to see if one of the other youngsters can. I’m particularly disappointed Holland didn’t go to China and get a chance.

    As I understand it, Wan Bissaka wasn’t particularly rated at Palace. He had to be thrown in because of injuries and he just flourished. I think sometimes you have to give these kids the chance to sink or swim before letting them go.
