West Ham academy product Nathan Trott has penned a new long-term contract, the club have announced on the official website.
The 20-year-old has signed a contract extension keeping him at the club until 2022 and he will now be targeting some first-team opportunities.
West Ham signed Trott in January 2016, moving from Bermuda on the advice of Hammers legend Clyde Best.
And the England under-20 international has been training with the first-team this season, although he is yet to make his senior debut.
Nathan Trott replacing Adrian?
And quite a few West Ham fans on social media believe Trott could take Adrian’s spot as West Ham’s back-up goalkeeper next season.
Adrian is out of contract at the end of this season and his chances of regaining the starting spot look unlikely.
Lukasz Fabianski has been in sensational form for the Hammers this season, leaving Adrian on the bench. The 32-year-old is likely to return to Spain in order to get regular playing time elsewhere after six years in East London.
Below are some opinions from West Ham fans regarding Trott’s chances of replacing Adrian next season.
Adrian will leave in the summer and Trott will be our No.2

Great news, hope he gets promoted to Fabianski backup. So many good youngsters just on the cusp of stepping up and joining the seniors.
