West Ham have always been regarded as a club that’s capable of developing prized young talent and the current set-up is exactly the same.
One of the most highly-rated players amongst the Hammers’ youth ranks is U23 ace Nathan Holland, who signed from Everton earlier this season and has impressed since.
Recently called-up to the first-team and sitting on the bench for a recent fixture, Holland put in a starring performance during a 4-0 victory over West Brom in the PL2 the other night.
His spectacular goal was shared on social media afterwards and fans are certainly excited to see him push his way into the first-team frame soon.
Great to be back. Goal, assist and a 4-0 win ✅. pic.twitter.com/gz2cRdvtfp

Holland has played for the U23 side seven times this season, playing 561 minutes in total, and his fantastic strike against the Baggies was his first goal.
The 18-year-old has also represented England at various youth levels, including 15 appearances and two goals for the Three Lions U15 side- he’s since featured twice for the U19’s.
Fans flocked on social media to give their praise to the teenager after his starring performance, which sees the Hammers advance to a play-off semi-final with Wolves.
