The 19-year-old attacker has been in absolutely sensational form for the Hammers U-23s this season.

Okoflex moved to the London Stadium on a free transfer having been released by Celtic.

And what an incredibly smart piece of business that now looks from David Moyes.

The Hammers really do have an incredibly exciting young talent amongst our ranks.

Moyes will be watching Okoflex’s displays closely. He has been in sensational form this season.

The 19-year-old scored against Leicester last night, but unfortunately we ended up losing the game 2-1.

The Dublin born ace has now scored 10 goals in just 12 games for the under-23s this season.

He didn’t look out of place when playing for the senior team during pre-season either, and even managed to score against his former club Celtic!

When asked about Okoflex’s display last night by the club’s official website, Hammers youth team boss Dmitri Halajko said:

“It was a really good finish. It was an instinctive one where he didn’t have much chance to think about it. He had some other opportunities where he maybe thought too much about it and could have got his shot off earlier, because I think, on another day, he’d get more than just the one. The goal he scored was a great finish and he’s in great form, and I expect him to score many more this season.”

Okoflex has a hugely exciting future ahead of him in the game.

If he continues to work hard and apply himself, he could go on to become a star at West Ham.

Moyes clearly sees something in him.
