Frankie goes to……………?
Young striker Frank Nouble will likely leave West Ham for a season-long loan to one of three Championship sides.
The 18-year-old made his Hammers’ debut last season, making ten appearances in total for West Ham. The 6ft 3in striker also impressed for England during this summer’s European under-19 championships. Yet, West Ham boss Avram Grant is reportedly prepared to let Nouble leave in order to gain greater first-team experience, with the likes of Carlton Cole and Frederic Piquionne clearly first choice in attack for the Hammers.
Sky Sports reports that Swansea City, Leicester City and Grant’s former club Portsmouth are all vying to take Nouble on loan for the season.
