Hammers keen to retain striker

Sky Sports understands West Ham are hoping to extend the trial of Chelsea youngster Walter Figueira after he impressed for their Under-18s against Arsenal.

Last Updated: 13/11/12 at 18:09 Post Comment

The 17-year-old marksman, who scored in Saturday's 2-0 U18s victory over the Gunners, initially joined the Hammers for a week.

The Londoner has been with Chelsea for the past three years after joining from Hampton & Richmond Borough FC.

West Ham are keen to see more of Figueira with a view to making the youngster's stay a permanent arrangement.

Figueira, who is out of contract in the summer, will have another chance to impress when the Hammers' U18s take on West Brom on Saturday.
