West Ham United are comfortable in the top half of the league points table but they had a busy January transfer window, which saw them sign a couple of exciting players while letting a couple of first-team stars leave. They have also sent four players out on loan, as David Moyes looks to assert his flair on the squad at London Stadium.
But there are a few youngsters at the club, who should have been sent out on loan, to gain some experience and 18-year old Domingos Quina is one player who missed out on such a deal.
According to reports from the Daily Mail, the youngster was set to join League One outfit Scunthorpe on deadline day but West Ham decided to pull the plug, and retained him till the end of the season. It is understood that the Hammers wanted a loan fee from the League One outfit, which they were not ready to pay.
Standing in the 4th place, fighting for promotion, The Iron would have been a decent destination for the Portuguese teenager, who would have got some game time under his belt. But he will not be a part of the West Ham squad till the end of the season so does he have a chance to break into the first team?
The Portuguese U19 international only broke into the senior side at London Stadium in 2016 and made two appearances in the Europa League all season. He failed to impress Slaven Bilic and now David Moyes, and has an FA Cup and three League Cup appearances, but is yet to make his Premier League debut.
A central midfielder who loves to control the tempo of the game, he is highly regarded as one of the most exciting talents in the Portuguese domestic circuit and is not too far away from making a name for himself in Europe. With decent pace and gifted technical ability, he is a hard man to mark in the middle of the park.
He is a busy customer, who loves to have the ball at his feet and run the game in the midfield role and Moyes will hope that he can turn into a first team star quickly.
The former Everton manager is well known for giving chances to youngsters and though a move to League One could have given the 18-year loads of playing time, staying back with his parent club, will not only give him a chance to impress the manager but will also allow him to compete for a place in the first team, later in the season.
At his age, he has loads of time to improve but do you think he will make another senior appearance for West Ham this season, now that they are out of both domestic cup competitions?
