West Ham United's Elliot Lee is currently on a temporary spell with League Two side Luton Town.

West Ham United forward Elliot Lee has refused to rule out making his loan move a permanent one in Luton and Dunstable on Sunday

Lee was loaned out to League Two side Luton Town last week and he has made an impressive start to life at Kenilworth Road, scoring on his debut. 

It was a goal which should give him confidence to push on, and he certainly seems to be enjoying his time with the Hatters, with the 20-year-old admitting he would consider making his temporary switch a more permanent one should the opportunity arise. 

“If everything was to go well and I wasn’t wanted at West Ham then maybe I would think about it, he admitted. "It’s early days and I’m just enjoying my loan spell. It’s not the same playing U21s football.

"It’s good being on the bench for the [West Ham] first team now and again but those opportunities have been lacking at the minute. I’m really happy to come to Luton Town and hopefully score some goals.”

Lee's loan move is his third in recent years, with the forward spending time with Colchester United and Southend United previously. 

His departure from the Boleyn Ground actually disappointed a few Hammers fans, who would have liked to have seen him in their senior squad until the end of the campaign.

West Ham are short of cover up-front and there was a feeling that Lee could have been given a promotion, considering his form for the club's development sides.

Lee has been tipped to have the potential to make it with the Hammers and he will be looking to show just how talented he is by helping Luton's promotion bid until the end of the campaign.
