Unlucky Hammer Bowen

Jarrod Bowen is the next in line for a new contract at West Ham with his deal expiring in 2025


More praise for Jarrod Bowen, this time from Andy Townsend and Ally McCoist when they were talking about his England chances on talkSPORT .

Both thought Bowen was extremely unlucky not to be in Gareth Southgate’s squad.

Townsend then praised Bowen for all the progress he has made this year.

Townsend said: “What I like about him Ally, I think he’s gone on a notch, he’s improved as a player.

 “As you say, genuine end product in his game now whether it be crosses, shots and goals of course.

 “I think he would be a very useful addition in an international squad, I really do.”

And there will be very few West Ham fans who disagree with those sentiments.

The Irons are flying high at the top end of the Premier League and Bowen has been a big reason why.
