West Ham United talent Martin Samuelsen reveals his hopes for Hammers future

The Norwegian is currently out on loan with Peterborough United.

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.

Since then he has impressed in the West Ham under-21s and has even made his first-team debut for West Ham - playing against Birkirkara in the Europa League.

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

He has been a resounding hit at London Road with his range of skills and football brains really working wonders in League One. He has scored in his last two appearances for the club and he is looking every inch a top talent for the future.

Samuelsen has been speaking to BBC Cambs Sport this week about his long-term future and he has made it clear that he sees himself sticking around at West Ham for years to come:

“From the second I came to Peterborough the players welcomed me.

“I really like it here. When you have the backing of the players you can try more things which is what my game is all about.

“Short term I want to get promoted with Posh and go far in the FA Cup.

“Long term I want to play for the West Ham and win trophies with them and play in Europe. It is important not to rush things.

“I can gain confidence here to move up to the Premier League next season."

Hammers fans will hope so. He is looking a real star of the future and in time they will hope that he makes Manchester City rue the day they ever let him leave the club.
