West Ham youngster Dan Kemp makes loan plea

Dan Kemp has pleaded with West Ham United to let him head out on loan, as reported by Football Insider.

What’s the story?

It has been suggested that the 21-year-old wants a move away from the club for the second half of the campaign, feeling that it could help to ignite his career.

West Ham are now said to be looking for League Two clubs that he could temporarily join, with the winger having rejected offers to play for Non-League clubs.

The Hammers are unsure about whether to let him leave, though do feel that he could benefit from playing against senior defenders from the lower leagues on a regular basis.

This could see him follow in the footsteps of Nathan Holland and Conor Coventry, who have temporarily joined Oxford United and Lincoln City respectively.

A needed step

Kemp is right to suggest that he could benefit from a move into the Football League, as he has already shown that he is a quality player at Premier League 2 level.

This campaign, he has eight goals and four assists from 14 appearances, which includes an assist in the U23s’ most recent game, a 3-3 draw against Reading.

He was also nominated for PL2 Player of the Month in August, as reported on the official Premier League website.

As well as that, the youngster has shown that he can compete with defences from the lower leagues when he recorded a brace in the 4-3 EFL Trophy loss against Cheltenham Town.

Which two players were seen “hugging and kissing” each other in the tunnel ahead of Manchester United game against Liverpool, prompting Roy Keane to say that he was “disgusted” and claim that the players should have been preparing to “go to war”?

Kemp is still yet to make a first-team appearance for West Ham, with his sole appearance on the bench coming during a 2-1 win against Burnley in 2017.

This indicates that he is unlikely to get many opportunities in the first-team this season – especially with the Hammers sitting one point above the relegation zone – so a loan move certainly makes sense.

Meanwhile, West Ham need to ensure one of their key men doesn’t enter a toxic cycle.
