West Ham boss David Moyes has once again suggested that he doesn’t want to rush Jarrod Bowen into action, and some Hammers fans have reacted angrily on Twitter to the Scot’s comments.

Bowen was signed from Hull City on transfer deadline day last month for around £22 million (The Guardian).

The 23-year-old is still yet to start a game for West Ham, however, having to make do with two late cameo appearances against Manchester City and Liverpool respectively.

The lively attacker was on fire for Hull in the Championship this season, racking up 16 goals and seven assists in 29 Championship outings (Who Scored).

The Hammers fans are desperate to see Bowen in action from the start tomorrow against Southampton.

But Moyes once again refused to get carried away when asked what the 23-year-old can bring to his team, as quoted by Football.London:

Moyes’s comments really are strange. Surely Bowen was signed with the precise intent for him to make an immediate impact?

West Ham are not currently in a situation where they can be patient with Bowen. They need him in the team and firing on all cylinders now.

And some Hammers fans took to Twitter in reaction to Moyes’s comments on the former Hull City ace…
