The 18-year-old Hammers starlet has really impressed at youth level over the past year or so.
Potts – a defensive midfielder who can also operate at centre-back is the son of West Ham legend Steve.
Stevie Potts went on to play 508 games for the Hammers and was an absolute stalwart for the club during his 18-year spell in East London.
And it seems as though his son may well one day go on to emulate him.
David Moyes is a huge fan of West Ham youngster
Finding a top-class defensive midfielder is very hard nowadays. Most young children want to be strikers, wingers or number 10s.
Luckily, West Ham have arguably the best DM in the world in the shape of Declan Rice.
Perhaps we have another one coming through the ranks as well…
According to a report from The Athletic, David Moyes considers Potts to be one of the most promising prospects in the under-23s.
Ex-West Ham youth team coach Dmitri Halajko described Potts as an ‘unbelievable’ talent just a few months ago (WHUFC.COM).
The 18-year-old models himself on Declan Rice according to The Athletic.
And if the teenager ends up reaching anywhere near Dec’s level then we will have an incredibly good player on our hands.
If he continues to work hard on and off the pitch, there is no reason why he can’t go on to be a big star at West Ham.
And if he does, it will be further evidence of our academy really kicking on under the stewardship of David Moyes.
