Xande Silva joins Aris Thessaloniki FC on season-long loan

Xande Silva


West Ham United can confirm that forward Xande Silva has joined Greek team Aris Thessaloniki FC on loan until the end of the 2020/21 season.

The former Portugal youth international has featured once for the Under-23s so far this campaign, having returned from a long-term lay-off in February to register three goals and a further assist at the end of last season.

Prior to his injury, the 23-year-old had featured twice for the West Ham United first team during the 2018/19 season, making his Premier League debut away at Burnley in December 2018.

Silva will now look to acquire valuable first-team experience at Aris, who currently sit top of Super League Greece with three wins from four matches played thus far.

Everybody at West Ham United would like to wish Xande all the best for his loan spell.
