Athletic, energetic and unwaveringly tenacious, Ossama Ashley has already demonstrated in his early days as a Hammer that he has a tendency to leave absolutely everything out on the pitch.
The 20-year-old joined the Club’s development squad at the culmination of a successful trial period in August 2020.
Ashley is a box-to-box competitor whose route into professional football was an unorthodox one, having first had his potential identified by AFC Wimbledon in his late teenage years through a college programme.
Having subsequently grafted with the Dons to refine aspects of his game to a professional standard, Ashley signed professional terms in south London in 2019/20 at 19 years of age.
Having now signed for West Ham, Ashley will be looking to make a similar impact for the Academy of Football on the competitive scene.
