Highly-rated defender Josh Pask has come out and revealed that Arsenal offered him a contract to sign up.
Pask has signed a three year contract with West Ham on his 17th birthday, having first joined the Academy at just eight years old.
However, he has admitted that Arsenal tried to lure him away with a contract offer of their own.
He revealed to whufc.com: “It’s definitely a proud day for me and my family. I’ve worked really hard for this.
“When West Ham offered me the contract, I thought why not take it. Arsenal offered me a contract as well but I thought West Ham was the best place for me.”
