Darragh MacAnthony is clearly pleased with the West Ham star.

West Ham United pulled off a good signing in the summer when they managed to convince Manchester City youngster Martin Samuelsen to switch Premier League clubs.

The 18-year-old midfielder joined up with The Hammers in the summer from the City academy and has impressed in the West Ham under-21s and he has even made his first-team debut for West Ham - playing against Birkirkara in the Europa League - as well as playing well in pre-season.

He scored against Peterborough in a friendly in the summer and The Posh snapped him up on loan recently.

He has been a resounding hit at London Road with his range of skills and football brains really working wonders in League One.

Yesterday however saw him make his biggest impact.

He scored the winning goal for the club in a thrilling 3-2 win over Sheffield United.

After the game Peterborough fans wanted to know one thing - will he be sticking around?

Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony even responded to one Posh fan on Twitter who asked him that very question:

Of course Peterborough will be hoping to keep hold of the Norwegian but much depends on West Ham's injury situation.

In an ideal world though the Hammers are likely to want a League One stay for the teenager as he continues to improve at that level.
