He was seen as the Portuguese prodigy with a number of top European clubs after his signature but who is West Ham's new young star Domingos Quina?

His cameo in last night's Europa League tie against NK Domzale made the 16 year-old the club's second-youngest appearance-maker in a competitive game but should we expect to see more of West Ham teenager Domingos Quina?

Quina, originally from the West African nation of Guinea-Bissau, was formerly of Benfica in Portugal before initially planning to make a switch to Chelsea. However, confusion over his registration meant West Ham were able to sign the starlet on a two-year scholarship deal.

The teenager is regarded as one of the upcoming new talents, and for West Ham United to secure his services was a huge coup for a club who are looking to build a team fuelled with world-class talent.

Though he is evidently a fledgling talent, Quina appears to possess some of the same qualities of the main man at West Ham United, France star Dimitri Payet.

Quina certainly looks comfortable on the ball with both feet, has the ability to come deep to link up play from midfield to attack, as well as possessing the kind of flamboyancy and exuberance that leaves supporters not quite knowing what to expect next.

No doubt the Hammers have gained a real gem, but with teenagers such as Reece Oxford having made the breakthrough in recent time, can he become the next in a line of young talent to emerge at the Olympic Stadium?
