The 18-year-old has now signed his first professional terms at the London Stadium (WHUFC.com).

Laing is an all round defender. He can operate at both centre-back and right-back.

The West Ham youngster can even fill in at defensive midfield if needed.

Laing has been on trial with the Hammers since January and he has already made some waves in East London.

The talented teenage defender played 13 games for our under-18 team. And he clearly impressed.

The former Arsenal man is now on professional terms at West Ham and hopefully the only way is up.

He has been described as an uncompromising defender with good athleticism and technical ability by the Hammers’ official website.
