Hogan Ephraim, who spent much of last season on loan at Colchester United, will today discuss the possibility of getting a new contract with West Ham United, although has not ruled out a return to Essex.
The under-19 international, scoring the only goal for England as they lost in a game against Holland last week, will possibly agree a long-tem deal with Alan Curbishley`s Premiership side, before securing a loan deal to bring him back to Colchester for another season.
Despite the fact that Hogan, who operated in midfield for the U`s last season, only scored once against Barnsley, he has been a huge hit a Layer Road, with coparisons to Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo being justly made.
Hogan has admitted that his best position is just behind the front two, although looks to have a bright future ahead of him. He admits, as he looks forward to the possibility of securing a new contract that he faces a 'massive decision.`
Speaking yesterday, he said: "Hopefully I'll sort out my future when I sit down with West Ham but there are two or three other clubs interested in me."
I've enjoyed my time at Colchester and I loved it there from day one."
He added: "It's a massive decision for me," before going on to lavish praise onto Colchester United and the catching staff.
"The manager is the best man-manager I have worked under and him and Mick Harford really look after their players.
"It's been a very good season but the last month was especially pleasing.
"They were big pressure games and I enjoyed playing in them.
"I felt I did myself justice and I was happy with the way I played.
"I was a bit disappointed that I didn't get one or two more goals.
"But it was a good experience at Colchester and I'm hoping it'll help me to improve next season."
