West Ham are one of clubs the mix to sign Northern Ireland teenager forward George Feeney, it has been reported by ExWHUEmployee.
Our Hammers Academy has a recent and very positive track record of signing top talents in the game from Northern Ireland, with Patrick Kelly and Calum Marshall both impressing greatly since their arrivals.
Ex has now exclusively reported that the club are now working on bringing in a player than has been described by Steven Beacon in the Telegragh as a ‘sensation’.
Feeney is the son of former professional striker Warren Feeney, who is now manager of Glens, with the young player already making his mark at senior level for his club Glentoran.
Reporting on The West Ham Way Podcast, our club insider has revealed that West Ham are fighting to secure the signature of Feeney, but face stiff competition from Premier League clubs.
“The club are trying to sign another top talent from Northern Ireland in George Feeney, who is only 15 but very highly rated.
“We do however face competition from other clubs, including Chelsea and Brighton.
“It is hoped that having fellow countrymen Calum Marshall and Patrick Kelly at the club and doing well could well give West Ham the advantage.”
Ex will be keeping fans up to date on the progress of the situation as it develops on The West Ham Way Patreon.
