BBC Pundit Steve Brown thinks that West Ham have made a “brilliant” £30M James Ward Prowse transfer decision. The 28-year old Englishman left Saints after being there for 20years securing a move this summer. Ward Prowse joined Southampton in his youth and subsequently became club captain for three years.
Ward Prowse proved his worth at West Ham in no time
West Ham boss David Moyes took advantage of Southampton falling out of the Premier League to sign Ward Prowse on a four-year contract. Moreover, it does not took Ward Prowse too long to open his account with West Ham United. He has already provided a goal along with three assists in his first three appearances for the London Club.
Former Saints skipper registered two assists on his debut in a 3-1 victory over Chelsea. Nayed Aguerd headed the corner from Ward Prowse to break the deadlock and open scoresheet. The midfielder then provided an assist to Michail Antonio too. The Hammers saw Ward Prowse register his first goal against Brighton and Hove Albion in a 3-1 victory again.
He registered another assist as Kurt Zouma buried home a header from his corner. The midfielder played a precise delivery into the box against Luton Town on Friday night. Zouma left goalkeeper Thomas Kaminski with zero chance of keeping it out.
Brown thinks Moyes secured a “brilliant” transfer
Steve Brown, BBC Pundit and a former Charlton Athletic defender believes Ward Prowse’s ability under David Moyes proves that West Ham secured a “brilliant” bargain. The ex-Charlton Athletic defender also adds that his set-piece threat, alone, is a great addition.
“I think Ward-Prowse is a brilliant signing. For set-pieces, alone, he is a great signing, and he’s a wonderful football player, as well.” Brown told BBC Sport’s The Far Post podcast.
