Hollander: There can only be one

Nathan Holland, the new kid in town, is already exceeding expectations

Nathan Holland has done nothing but impress since arriving from Everton a few weeks ago. In his three appearances so far for the U23 Hammers, Holland has already netted three goals. The U19 English international has wasted no time in showing why Tony Henry and Slaven Bilic targeted the young attacker.

West Ham United coach Terry Westley has been in awe of the boy’s talent so far and is excited to help develop this talent.

"The captain Declan Rice was outstanding, a nine out of ten, Nathan Holland; what a signing that looks to be. And Domingos Quina, for a first year scholar, lightens the pitch up every time he plays."

Holland helped the PL2 Hammers seal a nice victory over Fulham. In the second half, up by two goals, Holland took a more defensive position on the pitch to show off his versatility. While normally preferring to play on the left side, he enjoys space in the middle of the field to show off his creativity. The right footed English starlet will look to continue this run of form next Monday, against Brighton.

Bilic and Henry knew what they were doing when they brought Holland into the Hammer fold. Based strictly on what we’ve seen so far, I’d say he’s up there with Martin Samuelsen and Domingos Quina in talent. Can’t wait to see what highlight reel the kid rolls out next!
