West Ham United must loan out Doneil Henry to the Championship

The 22-year-old Canadian international won't improve much in the under-21 set-up.

West Ham United have plenty of talented young players in their squad at the moment but in reality not all of them can get a chance of first-team football on a regular basis at Upton Park.

The talented 22-year-old arrived in January from Cypriot side Apollon Limassol as something of a gamble from Sam Allardyce.

The Canadian international is however, nine months on, still waiting for his West Ham Premier League debut. In fact, to date, his only game for West Ham was in a disappointing 2-1 loss to Astra Giurgiu in the Europa League.

At the moment Henry has very little chance of making it into the West Ham first-team, so should they send him out on loan to the Championship during the current emergency loan window?

Last term he impressed during a similar spell at Blackburn Rovers, after a recommendation from Ryan Nelsen saw Gary Bowyer snap him up. Unfortunately he suffered an injury and the deal was cut short but he needs regular English football if he is ever going to make it at West Ham.

Plenty of teams in the Championship are looking for defensive reinforcements and Henry might be one of the best options on the current market.
