West Ham United signed Jarrod Bowen from Hull City last month in a deal reported to be worth in excess of £20m on a five-and-a-half-year deal (as per BBC Sport). The 23-year-old is yet to make an appearance for the Hammers, but David Moyes has been speaking about the winger ahead of the Hammers’ trip to Manchester City on Wednesday night.
The 56-year-old boss has been quoted as saying (via the club’s official Twitter account): “I have been pleased with what I have seen from Jarrod at the moment. He’s come in and settled in very quickly, he’s looked very sharp in training.”
Will Jarrod Bowen feature versus Manchester City?
Despite Moyes’ comments, these supporters aren’t convinced Bowen will feature this week.

“But I won’t play him and I’ll sell him in the summer when relegated”

What do we think?
Jarrod Bowen had scored 16 goals in 29 Championship appearances for Hull City when he signed for the East Londoners and the hope will be that he can produce the inspiration and the goals that can steer the club clear of relegation trouble.
