West Ham-linked Keane Lewis-Potter remains coy on Hull City future

Hull City striker Keane Lewis-Potter is refusing to get carried away about his future amid links with a host of clubs, including West Ham.

Per the Hull Daily Mail, Brentford and Leicester are also keeping an eye on the player who has been billed as one of the country’s top attacking talents.

The 20-year-old is linked with an exit in January, but he appears to be committed to staying put at Hull City.

The same source quoted him as saying, “I don’t concentrate on that right now, I just concentrate on Hull and helping my boyhood club get to where we are and climb the table.

“Every player has to have high hopes and ambitions, every players’ dream is to play at the top level and hopefully I can achieve that.

“People speak about it but I try not to listen, you can get ahead of yourself and that’s when it starts to go downhill. You always have to back yourself but to concentrate on what’s happening now is the best thing to do.”

Worth a punt

Lewis-Potter is an exceptional talent for his age and is already killing it in the Championship.

Whether or not he’s ready to play in the Premier League is another question, altogether, but he’s certainly got the potential to thrive in the top flight.

Should West Ham feel like he’s not ready yet, they could sign him and loan him back to the Tigers.

This would make them happy, keep the player where he’s comfortable and they’ll also be getting a significant transfer fee for someone who’s already on their books.

Yorkshire Post’s Leon Wobschall, who’s seen plenty of the attacker has labelled him as “outstanding”.

It remains to be seen what happens in the future as he does not seem to be giving anything away about his future.
