21-year-old intends to play for West Ham again after Mark Noble made it clear he wanted him to stay at the London Stadium

Conor Coventry has shared how Mark Noble wanted him to stay at West Ham in the summer and suggested that he fully intends to return to the London Stadium in the summer.

The 21-year-old left the Hammers to link up with Peterborough United on a season-long loan in the summer.

Coventry, a talented young central midfielder, would have barely played this season, had he remained with West Ham.

Proven international Alex Kral isn’t getting anywhere near the starting XI, so moving away on loan was probably the right decision from Coventry.

Mark Noble wanted West Ham starlet Conor Coventry to stay at the London Stadium

The 21-year-old Hammers-owned ace has shared how Noble actually wanted him to stay in East London this season.

Coventry sat down for an exclusive interview with The Athletic and lifted the lid on the thinking behind his loan exit:

“At the start of pre-season, I was set on going out on loan to play more games. But pre-season went well and I pretty much played every game. Then my situation changed and I felt more part of the first team. Some of the staff were saying I should stay. Mark Noble and a few of the players were saying it would be better for me to stay and maybe break into the team. I spoke to the manager and he very much put it in my hands. He said, ‘I think it would be good for you to stay, but I also think it would be good for you to play in the Championship’. When Alex Kral and Nikola Vlasic joined the club, I felt it was best for me to go and come back next season with the intention of playing for West Ham.”

Coventry has played 10 league games for Peterborough so far this season and is still yet to bag either a goal or an assist.

Playing regularly football against grizzly, seasoned veterans will do him the world of good though.

We all know just how talented the 21-year-old is.

Hopefully Coventry returns a better player than he was when he left. And if he does, West Ham will have a very good young midfielder on our hands.
