These West Ham supporters want to see Ademipo Odubeko get a chance vs Leicester City after a hat-trick against Manchester United U23s.
Odubeko has once again impressed West Ham fans with his talent, after another impressive display in the Hammers’ academy match.
Odubeko – ready for the first-team?
The Irons U23s were up against Manchester United’s academy side, which, thanks to Odubeko, is a match they won 3-2.
Three of the goals came from the 18-year-old Irish centre-forward.
The West Ham youngster now has six goals in five Premier League 2 outings and these fans believe that’s enough for the youngster to play on Sunday.
Odubeko has already tasted senior Hammers football when playing in the FA Cup.
The 18-year-old got a combined total of 58 minutes in the competition against Stockport and Manchester United.
Here’s what the West Ham fans were saying about Odubeko on Twitter:
The youngsters’ future at the Hammers
Sooner or later Odubeko is going to want to play regular first-team football, which will either mean David Moyes has to play him or loan the 18-year-old out.
The West Ham prospect is doing all he can when playing in the Premier League 2 for the U23s, but Odubeko still seems far away from starting.
Perhaps this is down to the Hammers needing consistency right now?
With the possibility of European football on the table, maybe Moyes doesn’t feel now is the right time to start experimenting with youngsters.
Odubeko might just have to wait until next season, when the Hammers will hopefully need to rotate the squad due to European football.
