Crystal Palace closing in on deal for West Ham trialist

Published

on

Crystal Palace are nearing a deal to recruit 18-year-old West Ham trialist Jemiah Umolu after a good trial period.

The South London Press understands that Umolu will sign a two-year contract at Selhurst Park.

Umolu scored and assisted twice for Darren Powell’s U21 team against Everton in the Premier League International Cup semi-finals, helping the Eagles advance to the final against Jong PSV.

This season, the striker has 11 goals and four assists in 15 U18 games for West Ham. He also spent time on trial at Southampton.

Umolu would offer Darren Powell’s team with a strong presence at the top end of the pitch, which had been lacking since Ademola Ola-Adebomi joined Burton Albion on loan in League One for the second half of the season.
