Leyton Orient and Stevenage are showing interest in West Ham United youngster Dan Kemp, as reported by ExWHUemployee.
From 17 appearances across Premier League 2 and the EFL Trophy, the 21-year-old has scored ten goals and added a further four assists this term.
This has seemingly captured the attention of Football League clubs, with his brace against Cheltenham Town likely having played a part in that.

ExWHUemployee didn’t mention the nature of the move, which has left it open to interpretation and led to various Hammers fans expressing their hopes that it will only be a loan.
It has previously been suggested by Football Insider that the winger has been pleading for a temporary switch, which indicates that he could be getting his wish.
That is also shown through the fact that League Two clubs were being targetted by West Ham, with the player having turned down the chance to play in Non-League, according to the report.
Call yourself a West Ham expert? How much did each of these January signings cost?

On loan right?

On loan I hope? He looks class…

However, there is still fear that he could be let go permanently, which may have been triggered by the sale of Joe Powell.
FFC has already suggested that losing the midfielder should be seen as a warning shot for David Moyes and West Ham.
It would be a blow to see Kemp permanently leave the club so soon after Powell walked out of the exit door, so fans are hoping he is following in the footsteps of Nathan Holland and Conor Coventry instead.
Loan please. All our boys are going & happy they need the experience but hope we don’t sell Kemp too. Lil Pocket Rocket
