Martin Samuelsen tips Djair Parfitt-Williams for big future, calls him an amazing player

Martin Samuelsen appears to be a big fan of West Ham teenager Djair Parfitt-Williams.

West Ham United sensation Martin Samuelsen has told the club's official website that striker Djair Parfitt-Williams is 'an amazing football player'.

Samuelsen, 19, has been tipped for stardom since joining the Hammers from Manchester City last summer, as his performances in pre-season and for the West Ham Under-21's have caught the eye.

A loan spell with Peterborough also saw Samuelsen impress, and he was seen as the star man as West Ham took on Hull City in the first leg of their U21 Premier League Cup final on Monday evening - but it was another teenager who stole the headlines.

Striker Djair Parfitt-Williams struck in the 90th minute to win the game 1-0 for West Ham, setting them up well for the second leg at Hull next week.

The Bermudan forward is also just 19, and has been on the bench for Slaven Bilic's first team at times this season, when West Ham have encountered a striker crisis.

The youngster has only just returned from injury though, and will be hoping that his goal against Hull can put him back in Bilic's thoughts before the end of the Premier League season.

Now, team-mate Samuelsen has told West Ham's official website that he thinks Parfitt-Williams is 'an amazing player', and believes he is definitely one for the future at the Olympic Stadium, where West Ham will move to this summer.

"Yeah, Djair is just back from injury," said Samuelsen. "He’s three or four weeks ahead of schedule so it was great for him to be out there. He’s an amazing football player. He’s got great skills, can score goals and he’ll definitely be one for the future," he added.

Do you think Parfitt-Williams will become a first-team player for West Ham?
