Photo: Left-back Stephen Hendrie trains with West Ham first-team amid exit talk

The Scottish youngster has been linked with a move to Dundee on loan.

In the summer West Ham United picked up a good looking signature in the arrival of Stephen Hendrie from Hamilton Academical.

The Scotland Under-21 international left-back had been in great form for the Accies in his homeland and West Ham beat off plenty of opposition for his signature.

However the defender, who turns 21 next month, has struggled to find regular first-team football at Upton Park and is now being linked with a return to Scotland for the rest of the season.

The Dundee Telegraph is reporting that Dundee want the player to strengthen their defensive positions.

However, despite not currently being in the first-team picture, Hendrie is still getting stuck in in first-team training. The young Scot was pictured trying to catch Slaven Bilic's eye as he hopes to feature in the upcoming game against Liverpool.

Hendrie has not featured at all for The Hammers since his move from Hamilton, with Aaron Cresswell a formidable force in front of him in the pecking order, although has been on the bench three times for the club. He cost West Ham £1 million in compensation according to the Daily Mail.
