West Ham eye young 'Boro star

West Ham United are understood to be keeping an eye on Middlesbrough's exciting young winger, Adam Reach.

The Hammers are one of a number of clubs to have recently sent scouts to keep tabs on the 21-year-old England youth international, who has represented his country at both Under 19 and Under 20 level.

Reach, a left-sided player who can also operate at full back made his debut for Middlesbrough on the final day of the 2010/11 season in a 3-0 win over Doncaster (in which he scored the third and final goal).

However it wasn't until the start of the current season - following spells on loan at Darlington, Shrewsbury and Bradford - that he became an integral part of Middlesbrough's first team.

Thus far, Reach - who scored in the epic 14-13 Capital One Cup penalty shoot-out defeat at Liverpool last month - has featured in all 11 of 'Boro's Championship fixtures. His considerable input has helped the club rise to fifth place in the table, making them an early contender for a play-off spot.

Fellow Premier League clubs Manchester City, Queens Park Rangers and Stoke are amongst others to have shown an interest in the player, who has received rave reviews for his performances this season.

* Representatives of West Ham are also reported to have been present at last weekend's Modena v Brescia Serie B encounter. The match, hosted at Stadio Alberto Braglia ended in a 1-1 draw.
