17-year-old Regan Clayton could feature for West Ham at some point during our clash with Anderlecht tomorrow night.

That’s according to Football.London who claim that the teenager has been training with West Ham’s first-team ahead of the Europa Conference League clash tomorrow night.

The Hammers desperately need to take at least four points from the double header with Anderlecht, if we want to top the group.

West Ham have already been dealt a potential blow with the news that Jarrod Bowen and Maxwel Cornet could miss the game through injury.

David Moyes will have to get his team selection 100% spot on. The Scot will undoubtedly name a strong side, but it seems as though he could be ready to give one exceptionally talented youngster some match-day experience in Europe as well…

The 17-year-old left-back has been training with the Hammers first-team ahead of our UEFA Europa Conference League.

Levi Laing and Keenan Appiah-Forson have also been training with the senior team over the last couple of days.

Clayton is a really talented young left-back and has really impressed for the youth teams.

The 17-year-old has bagged three goals and two assists in 45 games for West Ham’s under-18s (Transfermarkt).

He is energetic, athletic and possesses really impressive technique for someone so young.

Now, Clayton will surely not feature for West Ham against Anderlecht.

A place on the bench for a game of such importance away in Europe would be hugely important for his development and experience, however.

Hopefully Clayton will become a big star for West Ham in the future. He certainly has the talent to do so.
