The 20-year-old has held his own when playing for the senior team as well.

Ashby is a very strong defender, possesses extremely impressive pace and is a real threat going forward as well.

The young right-back has bagged four goals and six assists in just 16 games for for West Ham’s under-21s and under-23s so far this season.

David Moyes is spoilt for choice in the right-back position at the London Stadium.

The Scot currently has Ben Johnson, Vladimir Coufal, Ryan Fredericks and now Ashby to choose from.

It could be argued that Ashby is now ahead of Fredericks in the right-back pecking order, however. The 20-year-old has so much talent and potential, and it would be no surprise if he was challenging for a regular starting spot within the next two years or so.

The Hammers can now afford to release Fredericks in the summer and get his £40k-a-week salary off the books in the process.

That will leave the West Ham boss with Coufal, Johnson and Ashby all fighting it out for the right-back spot.

And considering the fact that Vlad will be 30 at the start of next season, the 20-year-old Scotland under-21 international has every chance of forcing his way into contention for a regular first-team place.

Ashby is a generational talent. He clearly isn’t phased by the big occasion and has all of the attributes required to succeed at the very highest level.
