Bermuda goalkeeper Nathan Trott has joined Nancy’s French second division team on a one-season loan.
Trott’s parent club West Ham United made the announcement in a statement posted on their website today.
“Nathan Trott joined the Ligue 2 club AS Nancy Lorraine on loan for the 2021-22 season”, the statement read.
“The promising West Ham United goalkeeper will continue his development at the Marcel Picot stadium, where his manager will be former Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel.”
Trott made his senior debut for West Ham last season, coming off the bench in the Emirates FA Cup third round victory over Doncaster Rovers.
His opportunities behind first choice Lucasz Fabianski and senior substitutes Darren Randolph and David Martin have been limited. And now West Ham is negotiating to bring in Paris Saint-Germain and France goalkeeper Alphonse Areola on a loan-to-buy.
Joining the French club that gave birth to legendary Michel Platini, Trott becomes the second youngster to be loaned out from London Stadium – Joseph Anang moving to Stevenage, of Sky Bet League Two.
“Everyone at West Ham United wishes Nathan all the best on his loan,” the club statement concluded.
News of a possible move was first reported by the Daily mail Last week.
