The 19 year-old joins West Ham for an undisclosed fee.

Speaking about the move, Ekwah told West Ham TV: “I feel really good signing for West Ham. I'm really happy in myself. I want to thank the Club for the opportunity they have given me. It's a big achievement for me.

“I really think that West Ham is a Club where everyone is working all together. The U23s and the first team work really closely to each other, and I think that young players here have got a good chance of breaking into the first team, as they have done in the past.

“Loads of young players have reached the first team: Declan Rice has been captain, and he's so young and playing so well. Mark Noble is an unbelievable player who's been there and done the same. I just want to do similarly to them.

“When West Ham gave me the opportunity to come in for two weeks, I took it, saw how the Club worked, and I just enjoyed it. They gave me the opportunity to sign and I said 'yeah, I'm taking this shirt away!'"
