According to a report from the Hull Daily Mail, Hull City are closing in on the signing of West Ham youngster Martin Samuelsen.

The 22-year-old joined the Hammers in the summer of 2014 from Manchester City. And much was expected of the Norwegian.

Unfortunately for him and West Ham, however, things haven’t worked out for talented attacker.

Samuelsen has spent six separate loan spells away from the Hammers, and with his current contract set to expire in the summer, his future at the London Stadium looks bleak.

The Hull Daily Mail claims that the 22-year-old is closing in on a switch to Hull City.


And that might be just what he needs to help reinvigorate his flagging career.

The chance to play regularly at the KCOM Stadium should enable Samuelsen to get in the groove again.

And it would be no surprise to see him succeed with the Tigers.

It is very much a case of what might have been for the Norwegian youngster at West Ham. He never really impressed as much as he should have done for the club’s developmental sides and during his loan spells away from the club.

And because of that, he was never given a fair chance with the first-team.

With Samuelsen soon to be out of contract, a switch to Hull is a move that should suit all parties involved.
