After being relegated from the Championship with Burton Albion, it seems Martin Samuelsen is not ready for Premier League football at West Ham United.

Another year, another loan move for Martin Samuelsen.

In his three years as a West Ham player, the 21-year-old Norwegian has had temporary spells at Peterborough United, Blackburn Rovers and Burton Albion. In that time, he has made just two first-team appearances for The Hammers, both coming in Europa League qualifiers.

And with Samuelsen’s path to the first team seemingly blocked, Dutch publication De Limburger is reporting that this one-time Manchester City youngster could be on his way to Holland.

It is understood that West Ham want to loan the elegant attacker out again this summer and VVV Venlo have expressed an interest. The so-called ‘Pride of the South’ want to add wingers to their squad after losing both Romeo Castelen and Torino Hunte, and are understood to be very keen on the young West Ham talent.

The Dutch top flight, which is renowned for its open, expansive attacking football, could prove to be a good fit for a player like Samuelsen who is gifted, creative and intelligent but perhaps lacks the physicality required to succeed in England.

He failed to register either a goal or an assist in nine games for Burton between January and May, during which time Nigel Clough’s side were relegated from the Championship.
