The 19-year-old allegedly has the option to move to Parkhead today.

The teenager clearly has a very bright future ahead of him at the London Stadium. He has little chance of earning regular action with West Ham this season, however, with Vladimir Coufal, Ryan Fredericks and Ben Johnson all ahead of him in the pecking order.

West Ham ace Ashby to join Celtic?

Highly respected Hammers insider ExWHUemployee claims that the 19-year-old has the option to join the Hoops on deadline day.

Ashby would be a great addition for the Glasgow giants. The 19-year-old right-back certainly seems to have something special about him.

He is a strong tackler, has a fine positional sense and reads the game well.

The young Scot is really good going forward as well. He has become renowned for making lung-busting runs up and down the right-hand flank.
