Youngster could leave for PL rival

Sonny Perkins could leave West Ham this summer.

The Athletic reports that Leeds are interested in a deal to sign the academy prospect from the Hammers in this transfer window. 9

They claim that the midfielder has become a target for the club  as they look to swell their youth ranks.

Perkins is a regular for West Ham’s academy sides and was actually named the club’s Premier League 2 Player of the Monty in April of this season.

Perkins was also on the bench for the Europa League clashes with Lyon this season and has threatened to make a breakthrough into the first team.

It remains to be seen if the Hammers would be willing to allow a player of Perkins’ talent to join another Premier League club in this transfer window.

Perkins has three senior appearances under his belt for the Hammers and we’d have to assume that West Ham would fight tooth and nail to keep him.

  1. To be honest imo his not going to be a great striker anyway. Sounds like his got a bit of an ego too and showed nothing exceptional in the 23s. Jog on for me and okuflex and especially Dan Chesters and Ashby and longelo are far more advanced than perkins wanting silly money although different positions so let him leave and like the full back who went to Watford disappear into oblivion.

  2. And so it begins – the other downside to holding back the U23’s – someone else will step in, and they may well be tempted. Who can blame them? What amazes me is the number of stories out that we are keen on U23’s playing for other clubs – having been given the chance – but we ignore our own gold mine?

  3. He has the same agent as Mark Noble so I’d like to think they value the relationship with the club and are advising him well. I’d really like a little bit of transparency from the club about his pay demands and then the court of public opinion can really discuss it properly. It’s a similar thing that happened with Ngakia (who?) and Quina (last seen in Barnsley). Agents tell players they need x-amount of money and they’re worth this and that, and they ignore a sensible route to development and eventually first team football. He does look a prospect but at 18, and still playing academy level, should we be cowering to pay excessive pay demands? I hope this one can be resolved though, would be nice to keep him and have him emulate Rice’s recent journey with the club.

  4. My understanding is that it is a loan deal

  5. I’ve seen a lot of him.
    Started of well then probably just got a bit cocky with a rush to his head of the hype. Tried to hard to score for about a 6 games or so . Then I think his attitude changed for the last 3 games. Scored 4 and played for the team.
    Keep him but let Noble help negotiate
