Report: West Ham midfielder Sebastian Lletget to join Steven Gerrard at LA Galaxy

The American is reportedly set to return to California this summer.

Reports today are suggesting that West Ham United talent Sebastian Lletget is set to leave the club this summer to return to the USA.

Goal USA is reporting that Lletget will be joining the LA Galaxy in the summer on a free transfer. The US under-23 international will reportedly arrive after his contract expires at Upton Park and while he will make West Ham no cash, LA will still have to pay $50k for his signature to New England Revolution, who had a first option claim on the player.

The 22-year-old signed for West Ham in 2009 after impressing Hammers scouts whilst playing for Sporting Santa Clara.

The San Francisco native, whose parents are Argentinean, will leave West Ham without ever having played a Premier League game for the club. He played just once for the first-team, in the infamous 5-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup back in 2014. He has been on the first-team bench once this season, as Everton beat West Ham 2-1 in November.

Now he will hope to play in the heart of midfield with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard in his his home state.
