Young striker Elliot Lee has joined League Two side Southend United on loan for three months.
The 19-year-old was one of two players snapped up by Shrimpers boss Phil Brown, Sam Allardyce's former assistant at Bolton Wanderers, along with Yeovil defender Jakub Sokolik.
Brown, speaking to southendunited.co.uk said: "I'd like to thank Sam Allardyce for allowing us to take Elliot on loan. He's someone who is capable of scoring goals at this level and I'm delighted to have him here."
Lee is in line to make his debut for the Blues at Mansfield this weekend. His only other previous spell out on loan came at Colchester last season, when he made four appearances, scoring one goal during a one-month spell with the League One side.
Lee, the son of former Hammer Rob has made just two first team appearances for West Ham thus far, despite having been on the fringes of the first team squad for the last 18 months or so.
He made his debut for West Ham in the 1-0 FA Cup defeat at Manchester United in January 2013, before making his only Premier League appearance as a late sub in a 1-0 home defeat to Stoke in August of the same year.
