Frederik Alves is set to leave West Ham to join Sunderland on a season-long loan according to an exclusive report from Roker Report.
The 21-year-old centre-back joined the Hammers from Silkeborg in January for a little over £1 million (WHUFC.com).
Big things are expected of the young Dane at the London Stadium.
He clearly has a lot of talent. Perhaps he isn’t quite ready for regular Premier League action just yet, however.
And that must have played a part in David Moyes deciding to let him leave on loan this season.
Frederik Alves set for West Ham loan exit
The 21-year-old is imminently set to join Sunderland on loan according to Roker Report.
A loan move to League One could do the Danish starlet the world of good.
He will face a real physical challenge in England’s third tier and that will be invaluable to him as he looks to develop into a Premier League ready centre-back.
Sunderland will be getting their hands on a very good defender as well. Meanwhile, Alves will be getting regular football, something he wouldn’t have been guaranteed at West Ham.
