Newport County AFC have bolstered their squad ahead of Saturday's home clash with Tranmere Rovers with the signing of young forward Thierry Nevers on loan from West Ham United. With summer signing Offrande Zanzala set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a serious hamstring injury, Exiles boss James Rowberry was on the hunt for another front man. And 20-year-old Hammers starlet Nevers, who plays mainly as a left winger, becomes the 10th new addition to the squad since the end of last season.

Nevers joined West Ham on a three-year deal in 2021 from Reading, where he came through the Royals academy. Nevers impressed at Reading, becoming a regular for their under-18s while still a schoolboy before progressing to under-23 level. The Berkshire-born winger cites the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar amongst his footballing inspirations.

Described as quick, skilful and with an eye for goal, he scored nine times in 25 appearances for the Hammers in Premier League 2 last season and also found the net against Gilligham in the EFL Trophy. He has been tipped to showcase his sheer talent, pace, and tenacity at his new temporary club if he wants to slimb up the pecking order at parent club West Ham United under manager David Moyes.
It is not so clear as to why Moyes sanctioned the exit of the young attacker given how much time they are spending in the current transfer window looking for attackers to sign as they continue to prepare for the new season which has already gotten to Game week 3. However, a lot of Hammers fans believe that the move is a profitable one not only for the young player but also for the club, especially given the fact that he would be getting enough game time, something he would still be lacking if he chose to remain at the club.
Upon sealing the move, Rowberry, Newport manager, revealed that he's delighted to evoke Thierry to their club.
