Rejecting “the king of Scotland”, West Ham kept Conor Coventry

In addition to hunting for quality names in the transfer market, West Ham United club has just succeeded in stabilizing the current force.
Conor Coventry is a name not known too widely, but he is one of the brightest young talents of his generation in England. The 2000 midfielder is currently practicing at West Ham United, but his future has been questioned when Coventry’s wage request made The Hammers intending not to renew his contract.

Thankfully, the London home team fans were able to breathe a sigh of relief with the latest update from The Guardian. The British publication says West Ham has stressed its determination not to lose the best young players, after agreeing a new deal with Conor Coventry. The 19-year-old is expected to sign a three-and-a-half-year contract that includes the option of an additional 1-year extension.

Reportedly, the deadlock in the discussions about Conor Coventry’s new contract with West Ham took place from the beginning of the season, leading to the interest of many clubs in the English First Division as well as the water team. According to Football Insider, Celtic also sent an offer to The Hammers as soon as the official winter market opened, but only received a head shake. With the newly signed agreement, hopes for the current Scottish champions as well as other clubs may have gone to pieces.

Conor Coventry trained in the West Ham “furnace” at the age of 10. He is currently an Under-21 Ireland Republic player and has initially impressed at this level. In the West Ham shirt, Coventry made two substitute appearances in the League Cup and has appeared on the bench a few times in the Premier League. To help this talented midfielder have more opportunities to play, does not exclude the possibility of coach David Moyes’s team will let him play in League One (English 3rd Division) on loan.
