Salford City have announced the loan signing of West Ham United youth player Dan Chesters for the remainder of the season.

The 21-year-old arrives at Moor Lane in search of more senior minutes, following a previous loan at fellow League Two side Colchester United. He made 14 appearances for the U’s last season, but failed to score.

This season saw the youth player remain with his parent club, and impressed in the Hammers’ under 21 side’s EFL Trophy run, where he netted once and assisted three goals in five appearances.

Chesters comes to the club following the news of the outgoing Luke Bolton, who joined Welsh side Wrexham this morning.

Speaking to the club upon the completion of the deal, Chesters said: “I’m buzzing to be here, the stadium looks really good, I can’t wait to get started in training and hopefully get some minutes.

“My season’s gone really well so far, I’ve scored a few goals and got loads of assists so hopefully I can continue that here and bring what I’ve got there up here. I’m definitely hoping to bring some goals, assists, show my personality on the pitch and see what I can do really.

“I would say I’m quite a fast player, creative, exciting player who creates lots of goals and hopefully score some too. I can’t wait to get out there, put on a Salford shirt and show what I can do.”

It is the second incoming of Salford’s January window, following the arrival of midfielder Jezreel Davies from Premier League side Burnley’s under 21 side last week.
