Troy Deeney has told West Ham United Sporting Director Mark Noble to sign George Hall from Birmingham City.
The 18-year-old midfielder has really impressed with Birmingham in the Championship this season and seems to be destined for great things.

Hall has been tipped for a Premier League move by West Ham’s old adversary Troy Deeney.
Whether Mark Noble will act on the tip is another matter entirely, however.
Noble began his role as Sporting Director at the London Stadium on January 1st. His first matter of business was to discuss Declan Rice’s future at West Ham.
The 24-year-old will almost certainly leave the club at some point in the near future, so all the focus must now be on getting in the right replacement for him.
And it seems as though Nobes has been told exactly who he needs to bring in to the London Stadium…
Troy Deeney tells Mark Noble who he needs to sign
The Birmingham City striker was speaking on Ben Foster’s Podcast, and suggested that his teammate George Hall is a star in the making:
We have George Hall who I think is going to be a player by the way. I’ve warned five or six other teams that I know, like Nobes at West Ham, I’ve said ‘get this kid now’. He’s only 18 but he’s mustard mate. When he plays he’s impactful.
Deeney has been a constant menace to West Ham over the years.
He has bagged four goals in 10 outings against the Hammers, and he has bullied the east London outfit’s defenders in pretty much every game.
The 34-year-old has been our nemesis, so it will be nice if he can actually do us a favour and help us sign a top-class young player in the form of George Hall.
The 18-year-old is certainly a really exciting young talent.
He has bagged a goal and an assist in 18 Championship appearances for Brum this season (Transfermarkt). He is technically gifted and has power and athleticism in abundance – just what we need at West Ham.
And if Troy Deeney has told Mark Noble to keep an eye on him, we may well see George Hall at the London Stadium at some point in the future.
