West Ham pushing hard for Sheffield Wednesday starlet Bailey Cadamarteri
West Ham United are continuing to push hard to sign Sheffield Wednesday starlet Bailey Cadamarteri.
What’s the story?
According to recent claims from The Star, the likes of Brentford and David Moyes’ side have been scouting the 16-year-old forward, and there has now been an update on that transfer race.

The report said: “If it was up to the Hammers, then the talented teen would be on his way down south in the future, with David Moyes’ side believed to be extremely keen on trying to sign him.
“The Star understands that the London-based outfit have already made enquiries about the striker as they seek to tempt him further south, however indications are that the forward is happy where he is and is eager to keep progressing at the club with whom he’s been since he was just nine-years-old.”
Moyes would love him
Despite only being 16, the young striker has caught the eye for the Owls’ under-18s and under-23 sides, and he netted a superb hat-trick in a 5-1 win over Ipswich Town last season.
His father Danny, who of course has had Premier League experience himself having played for the likes of Everton, Fulham and Sheffield United, spoke to The Star about his son’s potential, saying: “It’s great for him, and physically he can cope because he’s quite a big boy for his age. It’s nice experience for him.
“He started to get a bit more credit for his own performances then, rather than people thinking it was because of me.”
At just 16, Cadamarteri is very much an exciting young attacker who would be one for the future at the London Stadium, but Moyes would certainly be delighted to get him in through the door and shore up the Hammers’ future up front.
While Hammers fans may not see Cadamarteri really come into his own any time soon were he to make the move down south, he could develop even quicker and realise his potential with the help of the Hammers’ Premier League-quality coaches and staff.
