According to a report from the Guardian, West Ham youngster Jeremy Ngakia is considering an offer from relegation rivals Watford.

The 19-year-old will be free to leave the London Stadium at the end of this month when his contract expires.

And that would be a disaster for David Moyes.

The talented young Englishman had been a key cog in the Scot’s setup before football grounded to a halt.

Ngakia has really impressed when he has played for West Ham this season.

And unfortunately for the Hammers, they did not foresee the 19-year-old bursting onto the scene so quickly.

The east London outfit, with a bit of foresight, really should have tied the teenager down to a new deal some time ago.

But alas, they didn’t. And now Ngakia is almost certain to leave West Ham.


The Guardian claims that the Hammers youngster is currently considering an offer to join Watford.

Now, if Ngakia is to make that particular move, he will surely have to be guaranteed regular first-team football. Either that or a massive salary.

Otherwise there would be no reason to leave the east London outfit for the Hornets.

As much as Moyes would like to keep the right-back at the London Stadium, Nigel Pearson will be equally as keen to bring him to Vicarage Road.

The Guardian does go on to claim that West Ham are ready to make one final attempt to persuade the talented young star to stay at the club.

But as things stand, that doesn’t look very likely.

And if Watford signed Ngakia, West Ham fans would be absolutely fuming that one of their bright young talents ended up joining a team who should have less ambition and potential than themselves.
