Sebastian Lletget is looking forward to testing himself against European opposition this weekend as the Development Squad head to Cambridge for the Absolute Sports Travel Cup.

The tournament features hosts Cambridge United, the Hammers, Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk and Spanish outfit Espanyol.

West Ham are due to face Shakhtar on Saturday and Espanyol the following day, with both matches kicking-off at 2pm, and Lletget is ready for the next phase of his pre-season.

He explained: "We've got Shakhtar Donetsk and Espanyol over the weekend - I want to perform well in those games and continue to perform in every game I get to play in.

"It'll be a good tournament against some good sides. There'll be a lot of youngsters, so I'll be one of the more experienced players in our team and hopefully we'll do well."

Lletget was given a 45-minute runout for the first team on Wednesday against Ipswich Town, and after making his debut in last season's FA Cup clash at Nottingham Forest, he relished another chance to play on that stage.

He said: "It's amazing to play with the first team and every time I do, it's a great experience. I really enjoy playing in front of a crowd and the fans were fantastic coming out to support us at Ipswich on Wednesday.

"It's a dream come true whenever I get the opportunity and hopefully I can keep impressing the manager.

"Pre-season has been good, the programme has been spot on and everyone has enjoyed it. It's been tough, but that's how you get better.

"I'm taking it day-by-day this year, taking every training session as it comes. It's taken me a while to really push on, and I'm aware of that, but I think everything is for a reason and I feel more than ready now.

"I'm so happy for the other youngsters who had the chance on Wednesday - they work hard, they are a good group of guys and I hope everything continues to go well for them."

Tickets for Saturday's game are priced at £15 adults and £10 concessions. Family tickets are available for £30
