One of West Ham United’s most talented young players has been spotted training with the first-team at Rush Green.
The Hammers chief has been trying his best to include some of the most talented young players at the club in his training sessions as well.
Dan Chesters is one of our most exciting young prospects, although it’s worth remembering that he’s 21 now, so he really does need to start kicking on asap.
Chesters made his first-team debut for West Ham two years ago in the Europa League, and Moyes raved about him after the match against Genk.
He has played two senior games for the Hammers but both of those have been two minute cameo appearances. So will he ever go on the make it at the London Stadium?

Chesters involved in West Ham first-team training
The 21-year-old winger was snapped training with the Hammers first-team at Rush Green recently.
You can see him just behind Said Benrahma, in picture number 5 out of 8 on West Ham’s official website.
Let’s hope that Moyes gives Chesters a chance to prove himself this season. If he isn’t going to get any minutes, then he might as well be sent out on loan in January.
Moyes proved on Saturday that he’s willing to give youth a chance when he brought Divin Mubama on for the final 30 minutes of our clash with Burnley.
So maybe it will be Chesters’ chance to shine next. He is a hugely talented young player, but as we all know, first-team football is a massive step up from the under-21s.
The fact that Moyes has included the West Ham youngster in first-team training at Rush Green proves that he thinks very highly of him. And it will be interesting to keep a close eye on his development over the next year or so.
