West Ham sent a number of their young players out on loan this month as player development remains a key philosophy for all involved at the club.

Martin Samuelsen has rejoined Peterborough and Marcus Browne moved to Coventry both on deals until the end of the season but Domingos Quina will not be joining them out on loan.

The 17-year-old attacking midfielder joined the club in the summer from Chelsea to sign his first professional contract and made his first-team debut in the Europa League back in July with two substitute appearances against NK Domzale.

After spending most of the season with the U23 side, Quina has been named to the West Ham bench for each of their last six Premier League games as Slaven Bilic wants to keep him in and around the first-team squad.

Scottish Premier League side Rangers were keen to take the Portuguese youth international on loan for the rest of the season but the Hammers have blocked their approach, according to the Mirror.

This could be a sign that Quina is set to make his Premier League debut in the near future and that he could be used frequently during the remainder of the season.
