Academy midfielder Martin Samuelsen has joined VVV Venlo on loan for the forthcoming season.

In what is being viewed as a last chance for the Norwegian youngster, the 21-year-old in understood to have agreed to move to the Eredivisie for the duration of the 2018/19 campaign.

"He is the creative man we were looking for in the attack," Venlo manager Stan Valckx said on Wednesday. "He's absolutely a great talent that has to seize his chance at VVV-Venlo."

Venlo escaped relegation by just four points last season, finishing just one spot above the relegation zone. Samuelsen is joined at the club by fellow new signing, 26-year-old Peter van Ooijen.

Samuelsen arrived from Manchester City four years ago this month but is yet to make the breakthrough to West Ham's senior squad, having made just two substitute appearances - both against Birkirkara in the 2015 Europa League qualifiers.

He had agreed to spend the latter half of last season on loan at Burton Albion but returned to West Ham in March after going down with a mystery illness, before returning to feature in two more games for the Brewers.
