West Ham Secure Irish Teen Dubbed ‘The Next Robbie Keane’

West Ham United hope Maguire will develop into an integral part of their first team.

West Ham United hope Maguire will develop into an integral part of their first team.

West Ham have secured the signing of Sean Maguire from Waterford United.

The Republic of Ireland Under 19 international has been dubbed the next Robbie Keane as he became top scorer in the League of Ireland First Division at the age of only 18.

Now 19, Maguire reflected on how all his hard work has got him to this stage: “‘In summer 2011 the Waterford manager brought me in for a couple of training sessions and gave me a chance in the first team and I took it,’ he said.

‘Here I am now at West Ham and it’s a dream come true really.

‘People tend to say my best trait is my movement so hopefully I can show that here.

‘I haven’t been told yet which squad I will be in but I presume I’ll be going into the reserves so I’ll try to work my way up like I did at Waterford.’ Maguire said.

As Maguire noted, his best trait is movement but he is also a clinical finisher that would scare any defence.
