Linfield striker Callum Marshall is set to join West Ham in January after agreeing a three-year deal, according to BBC.

The 17-year-old is set to play his last game for the Northern Ireland Football League Premiership side on Christmas day ahead of his move to the London Stadium outfit.

Marshall has featured for the Blues first-team since breaking into the side earlier in 2021-22, but it is highly unlikely that he would be forcing his way into David Moyes’ team once he completes his switch next month.

One for the future

West Ham have some talented youngsters in their youth teams, and it is safe to say that they have landed another one in the Irish sensation.

Marshall is without a doubt one of Northern Ireland’s hottest prospects, and he sure has a lot of potential for him to have been snapped up by the Hammers.

He is turning 18 soon and had been on trial at West Ham recently prior to a deal, and is one to watch out for going forward.

Marshall opened his senior account for Linfield in an 11-0 win over PSNI in the League Cup last month (November), and could soon be doing so for the Irons under-23s.

His signing will not particularly excite the Hammers faithful as they are crying out for a senior striker right now.

The Hammers are yet to add one to their squad since Sebastien Haller left for Ajax almost a year ago, and Michail Antonio could do with quality competition and cover going forward.

The Jamaican international striker has not found the back of the net in his last nine games across all competitions, and Moyes should be looking to bring in someone to help with that during the second half of the campaign.
