Sean Moore to join West Ham

Yet another youngster from Northern Ireland is poised to sign for West Ham. That’s about five from Northern Ireland who have now signed for the Irons.

Cliftonville's teenage sensation Sean Moore is set for a summer move to Premier League outfit West Ham United.
Sunday Life Sport can reveal the deal is all but done, with the Hammers beating a host of other clubs to land the gifted 17-year-old winger.

It is understood Cliftonville will receive an initial fee of around £170,000, with several stipulations in the transfer which will lead to the Solitude side hitting a financial jackpot if Moore makes the grade in England.

It is possible that the Reds could make in the region of £500,000 from the switch, with add-ons relating to the likes of first-team appearances. A hefty sell-on clause is also expected to be written into the contract taking Moore to east London from north Belfast.

The number of clubs from England and Scotland interested in signing Moore went beyond double figures, with Newcastle, Everton and Brighton amongst the other Premier League sides admiring his talent.

Promotion-chasing League One team Ipswich Town, managed by Fermanagh native Kieran McKenna, were also keen, with Scottish Premiership Champions Celtic another in the mix.


  • If we do sign him, he'll probably be another one who won't see action in the first team before being let go.
  • Probably. Most youth players won’t make it. But even if one or two make it through, it’s worth it.
  • Alternatively he could be the next George Best.🤷🏻‍♂️
