West Ham United are thought to be lining up a summer move for Derby County prospect Luke Thomas.

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder has been in outstanding form for the Rams' Under-23 side this season, also earning his first taste of the Championship.

He has gone on from the bench twice, in home wins over QPR and Bolton Wanderers.

Honestly dont know how much this kid would be worth. 

We brought him for peanuts a year or two ago and he's looked an absolute gem since IMO.

Knowing our transfer acumen we would probably sell for a chicken bake from greggs. If we kept him and he had a decent season in the championship we'd probably get a chicken bake AND a salted caramel donut.

Ahh so that’s why he hasn’t been picked to play for us. Don’t want him to get injured

It's in a Gloucester rag so probably just filling space

He came from down there didn’t he?

There is a reason Luke was stopped on the verge of going out on loan too St Mirren I believe it was, and it is a non footballing reason.Since then it appears he has applied himself too such an extent he is considered for first team duty.

The good thing is with Derby's academy status West Ham cannot just steal him away and pay compensation........he could be worth a whole lot if he can make the break into the first team and stay there.

Get him in for the last few games of the season and show him he's wanted, then do what we should be doing and nurture him into a Premiership standard player.

Selling now for maybe £1.5m with add ons, or giving him some first team football, let him help us win promotion and see his value hit 8 figures.

What percentage sell on fee do you reckon we have.
