Highly-rated Manchester United striker Mipo Odubeko has ended his stay at the Carrington training ground after confirming his move to West Ham on Friday.
The 17-year-old attacker scored 35 goals for United U18 side last season but he didn’t sign a scholarship deal offered him by the club.
The Hammers confirmed the youngster’s signature via their official website on Friday and Odubeko is prepared for the upcoming challenges.
The striker said he’s looking forward to getting started with his new teammates and new manager after spending some time as a free agent.

“West Ham is a club with a lot of history behind it. It promotes its young players, so it’s a great opportunity for me to develop my game and help the team. “
“I’m looking forward to moving to London – it’ll be a little different to Manchester, so it’s an exciting challenge.
Odubeko will hope to help the Hammers U18 win many laurels by maintaining his wonderful goalscoring record which will equally boost his chances of promoting to the first-team in the nearest future.
