‘Returning to London Stadium’ – West Ham decided to terminate attacker’s loan deal

West Ham have decided to terminate the loan deal of Dan Chesters from Colchester United, as reported by ExWHUemployee, writes the WestHamZone.

The reliable Hammers source wrote on Patreon [31 December] that the club have made the decision to recall Thierry Nevers from Newport County as well and there is a possibility that the two players could be sent on loan elsewhere.

Chesters has managed only six starts in League Two and hasn’t featured as consistently as hoped. Colchester are battling for survival and the Hammers have decided to terminate the loan deal of the attacker.

Chesters is a fantastic young talent and the club have made the right decision.

The academy graduate has been with the club since the age of eight and has shown his talent at junior levels over the past 12 years.

The youngster made his senior appearances for the club last season against Dinamo Zagreb and Liverpool respectively and did impress during the pre-season.

He is an attacking midfielder with impressive technical ability. He scored the winner for the Hammers in the pre-season 2-1 victory at Ipswich Town.

However, he has struggled during his loan spell, and apart from the 2-2 draw (25 October) against Crawley where he grabbed an assist, he hasn’t been able to exert his influence.

Chester has got an eye for goal and he is very confident on the ball. He has got superb composure as well, and the club must take great care of his development.

It’s really unfortunate that his loan spell didn’t turn out well for him, and hopefully, he can make an impact elsewhere in the second half of the season.
