forward Dan Kemp has agreed the terms of a new three-year with the club, it has been announced.

revealed on their official website that the left-footed wide man had committed to a deal that runs until the summer of 2021.

England youth Kemp joined from two years ago and has already made one senior appearance, as a substitute in the final league clash of 2016-17.

Kemp is a player who has come a long way in a short time at West Ham. The club have demonstrated their faith in him by handing over a three-year deal, which is a lengthy one for someone still in his teens. There is talk at that Kemp has the potential to establish himself in the first team. A left footer who operates predominantly on the right flank (in the same way as the likes of Lionel Messi, and Arjen Robben) but is comfortable in both wide roles, Kemp is an attacking player who creates and scores goals. He began last season on fire, netting twice and assisting two more in the first three matches of the season for Under-23s, but his progress was interrupted by a cruciate ligament injury last November. Kemp hopes to be back fit in time for pre-season but might take a while to recapture the fluency of his late-2017 performances. If he does, don’t rule out him knocking on the first team door.
