The English Premier League outfit has three Ghanaian players in their fold.
The trio all ply their trades within the Hammers youth teams.
Below is details about the promising youngsters.
1. Joseph Tetteh Anang (Goalkeeper)
The agile glovesman is a regular member of the West Ham United U23 side that play in the English Premier League 2. Born on 1 January 1998, in Ghana, Joseph Tetteh Anang started off his playing days with Ghanaian outfit Danbort FC, before moving on to join the Wa All Stars FC, a club owned by former Ghana FA President Kwesi Nyantakyi, soon after. Having earned his spurs with the club in his homeland, he moved to Great Britain and earned a trial spell with West Ham United U-18s. The youngster, having impressed in his brief spell with the club, was taken along for West Ham’s pre-season tour to Austria. Upon returning from the tour, he was part of the reserves’ side that faced Dagenham & Redbridge, beating the Daggers 2-1. Anang impressed in the game and seems to have done enough to earn a professional contract with the club. The 21-year old is a tall and well-built goalkeeper with quite a robust physicality for someone his age. He uses his physique well to deal with aerial balls in and around the six-yard box and shows good command in the area. He could break into the Hammers first team squad and become the third choice keeper.
2. Sean Jordan Adarkwa (Forward)
18-year-old talent inspiring confidence at West Ham’s U18 and U23 sides with his goals. Despite his tender age West Ham have pushed him to their reserves squad where he is scoring for some important goals. Born in England to Ghanaian immigrant parents, the young striker might not get his chance at the first team and is likely to head out on loan at where he is likely to get enough first team experience.
3. Keenan Appiah-Forson (Midfielder)
Likened to France World Cup winner N’Golo Kante, the teenager is blessed with great talent and is progressing through the ranks at the Hammers Academy. Awesome recovery rate and godly vision and breathtaking passing abilities. One for the future if he keeps his focus. Opened to play for Ghana or represent England.
