Alves Secures Danish Return

There hasn’t been much movement in the January transfer window concerning West Ham United but it was confirmed this morning that another of the Development Squad players has now left the club.

After the recent departures of both Connor Coventry and Ademipo Odubeko to MK Dons and Doncaster Rovers on respective loan deals until the end of the season, defender Frederik Alves has moved back to his native Denmark to join Br√łndby IF on a permanent basis.

The 22-year-old only arrived in East London at the start of last year but wasn’t given much chance to make a real impact during his short time with the Hammers.

Alves Spent the majority of his time in Stratford playing for the Development Squad but David Moyes gave him the opportunity to gain valuable first-team experience when he allowed him to spend time on loan with Sky Bet League One outfit Sunderland.

Despite being involved in a couple of matchday squads for Moyes last season, the Danish international youngster never made a start for the club at senior level but is now hoping for better things back in his homeland.

If more deals either in and out of Stratford are confirmed before tonight’s 11pm deadline, this site will have all the news covered.
