Just under a year ago, then West Ham United youngster Connor Coventry signed a one-year contract extension before heading to Sky Bet Championship side Rotherham United for the remainder of the season.
Today, it was announced that Callum Marshall has done likewise but he has signed a three-year extention and been sent out on loan to West Bromwich Albion.
Marshall follows in the footsteps of teammates Krisztián Hegyi and Gideon Kodua who have also signed loan deals away from Stratford this month.
The 19-year-old made his senior debut as West Ham exited the Emirates FA Cup in the 1-0 third-round replay defeat to Bristol City ten days ago and David Moyes felt it was the right time for the Northern Irish international to gain regular first-team experience with Carlos Corberán’s side.
Marshall will have a watching brief this weekend, as he is cup-tied for their match against Wolverhampton Wanderers but will be hoping to make his debut soon.
There is already speculation that more deals could be done before Thursday’s deadline. If any go through, this site will as always provide the details.
